C'mon: you could be doubtful, I understand the reasons. That's because I'm not active into the forum, but I have shared some material that you wouldn't be expected.
I think the high resolution version of "dance with grandma" is obviously a manipulated image. The problem is: wrinkles in the neck of Brad are less prominent. Yes, that's true: they are less prominent.
BUT: is this a really good reason for thinking someone is trying to obstruct your research?
Moreover: do you really think someone could be able to influence yourself and your ideas about 9/11 using an high resolution of the "dance with grandma" photography?
hmm, I guess for some reason I am not making myself very clear. This has nothing to do with "influencing me and my ideas". Let me try to explain again why I find this discovery of a "remastered" "dance with grandma" very significant.
For starters, the picture was very prominent in the vicsim research, as a convincing clue demonstrating that a lot of photoshopping was to be found in the 9/11 victims memorial websites. So relevant, in fact, that it still can be found on the home page of this very forum.
Secondly, it is crucial to note that this picture comes from an archive dated back to 2002. The vicsim research of Simon and Hoi certainly did not start until 2007, as far as I know. Maybe members from older times will prove me wrong, but I doubt anybody took notice of this picture, and its pitiful photoshop conditions, until 2007.
So, what the existence of this picture implies, if one was to believe blindly the digital reality of the wayback machine, is that the researchers photoshopped and altered a "prefectly good" picture
Naturally, this hypothesis is pretty far fetchet
, pardon my pun, considering that back in 2007 or 2008 anyone was able to check the original on the foundation website. I refuse to believe that simon shack discussed this picture on his website, if the picture wasn't all the time available as a source elsewhere.
You draw your own conclusions, enantiodrome.
As to my being suspicious. I think it is the right word, because I know my feelings and I know the word to describe them: suspicious. It doesn't mean I am right, but this is how it is...
