Critique of “Waiting to Die” an audio slideshow article posted by The LA Times – response to a college media project

The article can be found at: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/ed_shneidmanff_ss,0,3414993.htmlstory#axzz2v6BJHg1i This story covers a 90 year-old man at the end of his life. He is coming to terms with his mortality. Originally posted by The LA Times.

I think that they did an incredible job with this article. I think leaving in the sounds of his somewhat labored breathing was a subtle touch that helped to illustrate his age and the content that he was putting forth. I think that all of the photos were artfully done and went a long ways in telling the story. I thought that the timing was done very well with the audio lining up with the visuals nicely.
