Sometimes life offers such situations - where we get to focus on the truth...
And then we find-
Truth is stranger than fiction...

So much said in a few words!

Great picture of Lee Miller. I had never seen such a wee camera... And the second image, viewed as I read your words, captures a great part of this woman's life. Some people are touched by terrible things...

Let's hope there's always someone to bring such things to light, shine the light into that darkness, so it can be stopped.

Seems like a woman who understood darkness without being consumed by it ... As for America , maybe it has stared into the Abyss for too long ?

No camera too small to capture the truth. The naked eye version, sadly last the longest.
