Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 1/6/2010 (3722 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.
It's in the top 10 of most-Twittered subjects this morning and has editors talking here at the Free Press.
The photos of a sinkhole in Guatemala City that appeared Sunday after tropical storms blew through the area look remarkably fake.
In fact, at first glance it appears like something out of Photoshop Disasters. It says something about our culture when a photo that moves on our wire service is questioned by editors in the newsroom.
But media sites around the world are posting it straight up.
If you zoom in on the main photo you can see debris at the bottom of the hole.
Do you think it's legit? We've actually asked our wire service to verifiy the photos... stay tuned.
UPDATE: We've heard back from Canadian Press and they confirm that it's a legitimate shot verified by The Associated Press. I guess we're just too skeptical here...
