I love photography, and I love history. History meets photography in a wonderful way at Shorpy, a site I found today thanks to a friend. I especially love the pictures by Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, Lewis Hine and Russell Lee.
If you like history at all, or if you like photography, visit this site. You can even buy prints of the pictures! Most pictures have explanations, dates and comments. I am offering them with out any of that, altho there is much I could say. Enjoy.
Or perhaps be prodded to think......
