Hi Everyone, and very happy belated New Years Wishes. My apologies for the radio silence over the holiday season, but I’m sure you had better things to do than be online…. wait…… you didn’t? Oh well! Still – sorry about that.
I’ve started the year off slowly, as the short days and cold wet weather seep into my system, making me want to curl up and do nothing but sleep. But, as Sean needs to get up for work every morning, I think it is only fair that I do as well – so I get up and keep myself busy with house -, paper – and photographic work.
Art and Photography dealer Linus Carr – who always has the most amazing photographic material for sale, none of which unfortunately I am able to share with you online – has taken me back on board and I’ve been scanning and editing glass plates for him this week. I worked for Linus before leaving for Australia and -boy- did I miss it! There is nothing like a box of antique images to get your inspirational juices flowing!
Speaking of which, today I’d like to share a few of my favorite images which are in my personal collection so far. Some of them are only mass produced Keystone stereoscopic images – so have a look round if you want them for yourself as they go for a mere $5 – $15 (£3 – £10) each. Other good, and a recent additions, are my three theater promotional prints (from the Hudson Theater according to the seller), of which one is signed by Bruno of Hollywood a.k.a. Bruno Bernard and a full-sized Tintype in good condition.
Do you have a photo collection, and if so, what’s your favorite piece?
