Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Recently captured this historical face in Sutri, a wonderful medieval village that’s about ten minutes down the road from where Fred and I live in Monterosi, Italy. This image is part of a fountain within a lovely 16th century villa atop a tufa hill full of Etruscan tombs, as well as a sacred church likely dating back to the Etruscans.

    Well, I'd say this fits the them to a 't". Ugly, yet wonderfully textured. What is that in the mouth, looks like a rolled up piece of paper?
