Ex-SR photographer shoots amid danger

Holly Pickett, a former staff photographer here, has one of the best blogs I've seen. Helps that she shoots such compelling photos in such newsworthy hotspots as Afghanistan and Iraq. She's in Iraq now and recently had a photo on the front page of The New York Times. It's remarkable that anyone -- let alone a woman in a Muslim world -- can get such access. She is very brave.
