PICTURE OF THE DAY:

The Laughing Philosopher: American poet Walt Whitman (1819–92)
Photo by George Collins Cox
This image was made in 1887 in New York, by photographer George C. Cox. The image is said to have been Whitman's favorite from the photo-session; Cox published about seven images for Whitman, who so admired this image that he even sent a copy to the poet Tennyson in England. Whitman sold the other copies.
