    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?

    I dont think its real, baby elephants are never that small. The boy on the other hand might be from a more famous image.

    Edit:

    So I did a bit more checking, and I was right the elephant was totally off. The original image is of "Pete the Pup"

    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!
