    I ran across this photo on the web, and I can't shake the feeling that it was taken by a famous photographer... Can someone confirm or deny my suspicion?

    The Human in the photo is one of Hal Roach's "Little Rascals" movies. It might be Robert Blake, but I'm not a total movie geek.

    This is why i hate the digital world! There is no need for skill or even a camera! Just copy and paste images together and say "Look at my photo"

    That's right, in the old days faking a photo like that would have taken a little actual work!
