Real photo, fake Gandhi.
The person in the photo is an Australian actor dressed as Gandhi at a charity ball.
My mother got that same group of pictures in an e-mail from a friend a few weeks ago and forwarded it to me, so I guess it's making the rounds.
Although you didn't post it here, her e-mail included a pic of Abraham Lincoln and Edgar Allen Poe posing together. That one's a fake. It's two separate photos mashed together and was used in the book "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter".
The rest of the ones you posted are real, I know because I checked when my mom sent them to me.:cool:

Monday will be Labor day in the US. Traditionally, this is considered the end of Summer, a time to picnic, travel, go to the beach or just lounge around the house and enjoy a day off from work. But, in these times of Covid, thing are different.
It seems one man in Brazil has found a way to enjoy the outdoors, relax on the couch and maintain social distance......a lot of social distance.

I guess it was bad luck that the very first card I pulled was the one we call in German Kreuz Dame, should have told me something...
There is a certain inevitability about it, isn't there :)

Change of direction, some posture pics
