Examples of photo in a Sentence

  1. Nick Pope:

    Im more interested in the fact that this first photo has been leaked, and in the related leaking of information about the Pentagons Unidentified Aerial Task Force, where serving intelligence community personnel have shared insights from two intelligence positionreports, with my own defense background in this subject, three things stand out. Firstly, the description by one insider of the reports as shocking a wordthat begs the question what about UAP do these people find shocking. Secondly, the fact that the intelligence reports seem to have been given a surprisingly wide distribution in various intelligence agencies, and thirdly, the fact that the extraterrestrial hypothesis seems genuinely not to have been taken off the table.

  4. Jeffrey Flocken:

    The thought that the only way we can come up with to save the species is to kill them -- that, I would say, we are in a situation where there's a paucity of imaginative thinking. instead of killing it, they can be moved to a different area, be used to bring in photo tourism or eco-tourism -- something that doesn't kill the animal. People pay good money to go to Africa to see species like rhinos, and instead of just killing one for a quick monetary gain for a vainglorious American, it can be moved around to a different area if it is a problem with the herd.

  5. Jonathan Reiner:

    He's intentionally exposing people to the risk of acquiring a deadly virus just for a photo op.
