Loving LIFE

Most people I know won't have any knowledge of the origin of this picture - what it is, who made it, where it came from. It is, in fact, one of a series of shots from a photo essay, Country Doctor, made by W. Eugene Smith and famously published in LIFE magazine in August, 1948.

This photo, along with the others in the series, is now available online via Google Images. It can be found in the LIFE Photo Archives. According to the site, there are "millions of photographs ... now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google."

Awesome. Have fun.
