Zombie shows the context of a photo of the San Francisco “anti-war” rally held last Saturday. The Anatomy of a Photograph shows how dramatically what is not shown can affect the message. (H/T Ryne)

While you’re there check out the rest of Zombie’s photos of the event. It’s almost impossible to overstate just how nutty these people are, and yet from the news reports you’d think they’re just “Ordinary Folks Standing Up for What They Believe.” See for yourself at Zombie’s page, then read what Christopher Hitchens says in Slate about what he calls “the phony peaceniks who protested in Washington.” They’re not against war; they’re just on the other side.
