My dad & Capa

October 22nd is my dad’s birthday.

He was born in Caracas, Venezuela, on October 22nd 1954. Marco Antonio González, but everyone just calls him Marco, to not confuse him with my brother (who is named Marco Antonio as well).

October 22nd is also Robert Capa’s birthday.

He was born in Budapest, Hungary, on October 22nd 1913. Endre Friedmann, but everyone just calls him Robert Capa.

Happy birthday Pa, and happy birthday Robert Capa. I asked Magnum for two pics that I think you both would have loved,

A crewman plays with a dog on the bridge of a Cunard freighter that is part of an Allied convoy en route to Great Britain from the U.S. The ship is carrying seven airplanes, two torpedo boats, and twelve passengers who agreed to travel at their own risk. The captain and his crew are Norwegian and have crossed the Atlantic many times during the war.
