Fellow PhotoBlogger Rich Shulman has blogged about a shared cultural visual experience. I agree with his idea that our society has a shared visual memory that we all recognize (sometimes at a sub-conscious level). So, Im often surprised when I see pictures like this. Who doesnt instantly think of the opening scene from Patton when you see this picture? Is Hillary comparing herself to Patton or suggesting that she would be as tough as Patton. Is it just a happy accident?
