Not much to say about this one.  It’s just a handsome portrait of a handsome young man.  While I know nothing about the sitter, I did find this biography of the photographer, George Knox Merrill, including the tidbit that after spending thirty years running a photography business, he went on to distinguish himself in the field of lichenology.

  1. Very nice photo. I like his little tie clip. On his suit pocket, is it just a button or is it a pin of some kind?

  2. Photography and lichen – my kind of combination!
