Happy Birthday, Capa!

Today is the birthday of Robert Capa who was born on October 22, 1913 in Budapest, Hungary. At the young age of 25 he was named "the greatest war photographer in the world" by Picture Post for his coverage of the Spanish Civil War. He would photograph five wars in all as well as countless places, people, and events. Charismatic, smart, and funny, he once wrote in his helmet during World War II: "Property of Robert Capa, great war correspondent and lover." Says it all, really. My ultimate crush, I welcome any excuse to post his photo and say, Happy Birthday, Capa!
