^^^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!

"hey, they made a movie about
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.
