    I like the undercurrent of red in this picture. The writing on that machinery almost looks like it was written in her lipstick...I wish.

    Sunkissed chezie, anytime you'd like to use one of our images, you will need to look at the "Rights and Restrictions" page for the collection. In this case, you are using the Farm Security Administration Office of War Information color transparencies. Here's a link to the page with the information you need to know, www.loc.gov/rr/print/res/072_fsac.html

    It is photos like this which prove that Flickr is a fantastic visual resource.
    Now, if only there were less porn-cruisers.
