Picture Perfect

Pictures are powerful, emotional, serene, and sometimes controversial – A picture is worth a thousand words, so it is said. If that is true, we have selected the equivalent of 20,000 words by offering a 10% discount on 20 images through May 23, 2014. Enjoy the beguiling portrait of a young Jacqueline Bouvier, the confident, up-beat expression of a partially paralyzed wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the determined and decidedly successful stance of the Sultan of Swat, or Einstein’s contemplative gaze, even the seriousness of Dickens as he writes…
