The Fireplace Scam

The Fireplace Scam - Black And White

“My aunt gave me a very old family album.  This picture represent an ancestor resting her elbow on a fireplace.  The pose is stiff, like everyone’s pictures from this era. But when I looked closer at the fireplace, I saw that it was only a painting.  I like imagining the photographer’s instructions: ‘Move your elbow a little higher!’”
