What Is It?

I just remembered the image above of a painting that was the Commons:Picture Of The Day for June 26, 2015 on Wikimedia Commons.

The painting is called Detail Of Woman With Green Shawl (Woman With Green Shawl) by the French painter Cyprien Eugène Boulet.

It is listed as an oil on canvas (oil painting) that is located in a private collection in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Daily Post had a Photo Challenge today called Weight(less), and this is what it said:

Show us the effects of gravity in your photo this week.

And my response to this Photo Challenge can be seen above (I did not photograph the image above, I found it on Wikimedia Commons about two years ago and it is called Why Books Are Always Better Than Movies by Massimo Barbieri, but I think that it meets the theme of today’s Photo Challenge).

*I just found out that only original photos can be used in the Photo Challenges so I broke the rules without realizing it when I created this post, and so I will no longer do any Photo Challenges unless I have original photos to use.

I will possibly keep this post instead of deleting it to avoid deleting the comments and to avoid messing up links made to this post that are on other blogs, I apologize for my mistake, and I would like to thank everyone for the support and I would encourage you to warn other bloggers of this rule so that they will not make the same mistake that I did.* 🙂

The end,
