  1. oh, this one really makes you dream!

    (rummaging through some old junk today i found a box of old glass plates, some stereoscopic. there are about forty of them, small size. wish i had the time and money to extract new prints from old glass negatives. do you perhaps have any ideas or suggestions?)

    • Thanks, Alessandro. I agree, it does have a dreamlike quality to it. The glass plates sound like a wonderful find. I don’t have any glass plates. (The closest I have is some ambrotypes, which involve images on glass, but that’s not quite the same thing.) Sorry I don’t have the expertise to be able to suggest something. Perhaps somebody else here can?

      • it was worth a try. thank you 🙂

        plus: no rush – they can only get older, and therefore more beautiful, as they are well stored.

      • You could try a photography school, but better yet, connect with some 19th century reenactment group, we often have photographers who practice the old art. And, if they don’t know they probably will know someone who does.

      • Thanks for the tip!

  2. Swimming in Pictures will be envious of this one!

    • Oh, hey, you mentioned that blog once before, and I looked at it and liked it, but I stupidly didn’t subscribe, and I couldn’t remember the name later. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. I laughed out loud when I saw this. There is something so comical about this photo, but I can’t put my finger on it. Just looks like a good time to me. Great post!
