Cool nips bro.
I want to slap him with that slice of pizza. Slap him in the face.
This is really kind of amazing. Clearly stepping over the ‘journalism’ line to use illustrations of reality to sell papers. I’m glad choices like this were off limits when I worked there!
Breathtaking But Fake
Leading today’s Washington Post print edition (you remember those, don’t you?) is this beautiful photo by Bill O’Leary of the 14th Street bridge, accompanying coverage of the 30th anniversary of the Air Florida disaster. But competing for interest with the image itself is the lengthy explanation in the caption that what you see isn’t entirely real:
A jetliner flies high over a tranquil scene at the 14th Street bridge, where 30 years ago winter weather and human error conspired to bring down Air Florida Flight 90 in a disaster that claimed 78 lives. This image is a composite created by taking several photos and combining them with computer software to transcend the visual limitations of standard photography.
It’s not exactly moving the pyramids, and the disclosure is front and center, but does it bother you that this is going on in the mainstream press?
