What If You Were Lee Miller...

...And you were a war-time photo-journalist with enough female pulchritude
to work both sides of the camera.

You would, like all members of your profession, look for the best photo-ops.

If it could be documented that a tree house had once been occupied
by the most evil man of the Twentieth Century, you might want to do
more than simply photograph an empty tree house.

But that sentence is purely hypothetical.

The next one, however, is not.

The above photograph by David E. Scherman of Lee Miller in the bathtub of Adolf Hitler’s house in Munich is one of the most iconic images from the Miller-Scherman partnership.

But from the other side of the camera, Lee Miller's war photographs did not include bathtubs.
