Snow Day, Sweden

Feeling a bit down due to the polar blast of cold here on the East Coast…until i saw this picture of Sweden from 1918. I guess I feel slightly better now.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    All in favor of global warming and taking back Al Gore’s Nobel Prize, say, “Aye.”
    The photographer in 1918 knew how to take a picture of snow in bright sunlight and maintain its shadow detail. The sky was most probably blue, but that was not made evident. Think of the equipment required for that photograph! No digital, no roll film, but pobably a tripod.

    Big mistake on my part! Definitely a tripod, the shadow of the photographer, camera, and tripod can be seen in the lower right part of the picture. He loses two points for breaking a rule of composition.

What is going on here? Early 20th century photoshop? Was this taken last year in July? Is it a photographic method of MSM greenscreening to promote global regulation and taxation to counter warming?
