Another Fine Mess -- Online Images
Here are a few examples. The following are taken from the same photo:
Here are two more examples that come from the same original:
Even though they are from the same photo the top image is reversed (or is it the bottom one?). Here are three more images from the same photograph:
We can only guess at how many iterations of the photo will continue to appear. Here are four different copies of another photograph. Which is the original, if you care?
Is this simply a matter of esthetics? Does anyone really care if the original is changed so dramatically? It appears that none of these is the complete original, as a matter of fact. Why do we think we can change a photograph to suit our whim and not change the facts about their lives? Oh, well maybe changing the facts isn't a bad idea either? I think it is unethical to change the original photo without providing an unaltered copy of the original, if it is available.
