disturbing photo of carroll and real-life "alice"

Postby GiveACheshireSmile » Mon Jul 14, 2008 8:09 am

i always shunned the fact that people thought carroll was a pedophile and i've seen the photographs carroll took of alice and her sisters, as well as others, that people took as "proof" he was inappropriate with them, and I never thought they condemned him (they were hardly "inappropraite" by today's standards; they looked more like art).

until i saw this:

**there is no nudity or anything in this photo, but it is trully unsettling nonetheless

maybe the photo is doctored in some way? opinion please.

Hmm...this is a toughy... DIS:-S
It does look a little doctored, but something seems a little off. But then again...oh...! this is really tough! Get a smarter person to think of this! DIS|-p

Hahahahahahaaaa! I saw that photo before! It's fake indeed. Take a look at where Alice's hand is on Lewis Carroll's collar. The edges are way too hard to be part of a real photo. In fact, there are a lot of eges on this that aren't smooth enough for an actual photo and look pretty much cut..

Impressive photo edit, nonetheless. So chill, everyone. It's just a photomanip. Not anything real.

How can no one tell that's photoshopped?

Her hand on his collar looks purely CGI and drawn in...

People are sick... DIS:-/

Yeah. Bwaha, probably some 'tard who wanted evidence for their so-called "OMG LEWIS CARUL IS A PEDO!!111eleven!" theory, and photoshopped this. ROFL.

Note: Major misspelling of Lewis Carroll's name was intentional for a silly effect. ;)

Disturbing photo - risk of keeping this image up.

Postby jenny2write » Fri Aug 22, 2008 9:27 pm

The image is totally and utterly fake.

Here is a link to one portion of the real picture, you can see how it has been doctored. http://blog.modernmechanix.com/2006/11/ ... ematician/

The little girl giving a french kiss is added by some seriously seedy person.

More seriously, this is the kind of thing folks get prosecuted for having on their computers in this country! I don't know what site you got this from, but it is no excuse saying it is manipulated because certainly in the UK you can get prosecuted for having faked up child porn or links to it on your machine. I seriously think Lenny should remove it, and not take the risk of police or anyone deciding it is obscene or paedophiliac. Needless to say it is nothing whatever to do with Carroll, it is the product of some modern person's weird mind.

i just linked to the google picture because i was curious to see if it was a fake (and hoping it was!!)

and i live in america, so im not in any danger

and i hardly think this counts as child porn. at best it could be considered "art" (yuck) because it isnt real.

Hey not your fault!!!!!! Since you thought it could be real it was very understandable you would want to ask other people about it.

I had an email from Lenny who runs the site and he said although it is distasteful it's not actually posted on the site, it's only a link. Also, he doesn't think it's porn. If it was me I would not test that opinion in the courts, but I'm taking the line that he knows best, as he has run this site for a long while and it is a good site.

^ yah since itsa link therefore is not from here... so this site is NOT GUILTY!! :p

but anyways... dun bother bout this so much... its not even close to porn. its just some silly photoshop (badly done btw) by someone that didn't have something better to do... thats all.

sexual acts, as striptease for instance, are not porn... so that pic is only stupid stuff DIS|-p
