“Pictures don’t lie” used to be a very common expression that has gradually faded from common usage. It was great line in the old detective shows as someone drops a pile of photos on a desk. It was a game ender. And, it was true before digital photography democratized photos and photo processing. Now an image like the four eyed cat above isn’t that surprising when we see it. Our eyes do try to remedy it at first; but, simultaneously our brain knows what it is. It’s just another altered photo and we see lots of those. I couldn’t resist jazzing up my photo of a neighbors cat relaxing on a hot day. Yes, pictures do lie. They lie like rugs! Happy wacky Wednesday everyone.
