Frank Lennon, 79: Captured Canada's joy
(From The Toronto Star.)

"Whenever somebody asked him about 'the photo,' Lennon, a lifelong jokester, delighted in telling the story of how it happened. There he was at Moscow's Luzhniki Arena, he would deadpan. He was staring up at the rafters, admiring the struts on the ceiling when this Red Army soldier walked by and accidentally bumped into him, causing him to push the shutter."
