Young Woman in the Garden, Edouard Manet.  1880. It was Manet's Impressionist ambition to paint open-air pictures in such a way that `the features of the characters would melt into the vibrations of the atmosphere. The brilliant result here is obtained by a development of Manet's personal style of oil sketching in which he concerned himself with the general opposition of light and dark areas to the exclusion of half-tones.

For Chey...  Turtle Poem. "There was a little turtle.  He lived in a box.  He swam in a puddle.  He climbed on the rocks.    He snapped at a mosquito.  He snapped at a flea.  He snapped at a minnow.  And he snapped at me.    He caught the mosquito.  He caught the flea.  He caught the minnow.  But he didn't catch me."    -Vachel Lindsay, 1879 by samanthasam

But you’d be wrong. “In this digital age, everyone thinks everything is fake,” says self-described amateur photographer Brian Luenser.
