This IS shopped. Literally. Once The53 was exposed for using fake images, or shopped images with old dates in the EXIF data, they pulled them off the site. Now they’re trying to cover their tracks better, like this shot with a 10/13 date… taken in Adobe Photoshop CS4. Please explain why you need Photoshop to crop a photo.
Also notice how few of The53’s entries actually show people. Lots of words, which the same person could write over and over, but not many like the image above, with a handwritten sign.
Which was shopped.
I can tell by the pixels.
I come from a struggling middle-class family.
My parents have virtually no money to send me to college.
I worked my ass off in high school and graduated top of my class.
I got into Wellesley College with a full ride thanks to the generosity of the wealthy alumnae — the 1%.
So excuse me if I don’t whine about how the wealthy screw me over.
I am the American Dream.
