Fact-checking a Photograph
Sometimes a photo just seems too good to be true. You know how it is, the hi-res sunset is too gorgeous for a phone, the amateur's cake is too perfect, the crowd is too large. Something is wrong on the Internet.
Like this photo, which is I now know not of a Trayvon Martin protest. Twitter disagrees. Still.
When I saw it, it didn't seem quite right to me that the crowd had grown from nothing to this without a tweet in between. If just felt off...so I checked.

btw, this is also a great way to track down sites that have lifted a photo of yours.
