  1. 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!

  2. 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...

  3. These photographs speak volumes. A dark time.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

    like your analogy !

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

  6. Very nice and what a tiny camera for that time period electronics being what they were then. Nice take!

  7. An interesting and thought-provoking set of pictures.

  8. Great piece. Concise, and powerful.


  9. Let's raise a glass to those willing to look into the dark

  10. Now I am off to learn more about Lee Miller. That is what your poem did for me. For that, I tha you.

  11. 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 ?

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

  13. She allowed us to look into the dark. Good piece.

  14. someone has to find the truth. messy as the process might be
