Putin's guest anyone ?
A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

“Tell me,” she finally whispered, “is it fun for you to torture me? I should really hate you. Ever since we've known each other, you've given me nothing but suffering.” Her voice trembled, she leaned toward me, lowered her head onto my chest. “Perhaps,” I thought, “this is exactly why you loved me."

^^^Yeah, good stuff.

And although you're probably already aware of it, the Associated Press blog is a worthwhile visit https://apimagesblog.com along with their homepage http://www.apimages.com - I'd go as far as saying that the AP now a stronger pool of photographers and editors than there has been in quite some time.

It is inspired by Turner, but there are some later, un-Turneresque traits too. I checked, and it is by Albert Goodwin and from 1900!

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

There are lots of wrong attributions on the web, lately I saw a good deal of examples of landscape colour photographs that one could buy - but they were from other places than it was advertised ...

Yeah, it’s quite a normal occurrence to encounter mislabeled items when searching photos via Google or whatever search engine you’re using.
