This picture was taken about 2 1/4 seconds before he was hit...

Sorry, that's all I have on this one. I'm not familiar with this photo. I'm guessing the photographer is the woman next to the lady in red in this frame from the Zapruder Film.

The look on Jackie's face really struck me.

Hi, The lady you refer to is Mary Moorman; she took a photograph of Kennedy's head erupting, as Jackie cradled his head in her arms. I don't know who the photographer is, but it was much earlier on in the Zapruder film, probably just as the limo turned onto Elm Street.

Paul (from whom you obtained the picture!)

Hi Paul, and thanks for your invention. Keep up the good work.

I'm a little confused. Mary Moorman is the lady in red? Or the one next to her?

Also, if the photo was taking 2 1/4 seconds before the shot(s), it couldn't be that much earlier, yesno?

Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

Great photo. Thanks for that.
