The original photo portrays the ex-President, George W Bush performing a socially deviant behavior by giving the middle finger. In the cropped photo it is just a picture of a leader of our nation, the cropping takes out the bad. This shows that you can alter the meaning and context of a picture just by using a medium. Anyone can alter a medium and people must remember that. They can change it for the better such as in this cropping, or they can make it terribly worse if they so choose.
