The Ultimate Assignment

Ask any photojournalist and you will find out that the dream assignment is any assignment that involves boarding an airplane and traveling anywhere, especially if that anywhere is halfway around the world.

"...this is exactly why I love what I do."

A proud member of the Photograblogosphere(as Lenslinger has so aptly dubbed us) from LosAngeles named Bryan Frank is documenting his current travel assignment.

"The hours are long and we're only getting one good meal a day. That's the bad side. The good side is that the one meal has been some of the best food I've ever eaten."

He is in Rome covering the death of Pope John Paul II. And even though it's a funeral it's the chance of a lifetime for those assigned to cover it.



"Just know that I'm working my ass off, getting hardly any sleep,
drinking Peroni beer and having a great time. . .for a
funeral."

Wow. That beFrank really gets some cool assignments. I want to be him when I grow up.

You know, it's really guys like you and Lenslinger that are just plain cool people for giving him a nod on your blog.
