Hawkish Physiology (faux wet plate collodion)

A detail of display at The World Bird Sanctuary. I believe this was from a Red-tailed Hawk, but the way my brain / memory works hiccups along, who knows.

Anna No. 3 (faux wet plate collodion)

Totally exaggerated freckles (although I was tempted to pull them out even further). Ditto the luminous / iridescent / ‘Underworld-ish’ eyes. Over-processing. That’s just how I roll fake-ambrotype.

Administration Building, University of Notre Dame (faux wet plate collodion)

Regulars might know I’ve been watching Notre Dame football since I was about 8 years old. Needless to say, Monday was a rough day for me (not the best ending to an incredible undefeated season). If any Bama fans are looking-in, congratulations on a very well deserved win. Crimson is predicted to be a popular color again next fall… I can see why… but no matter what happens I’ll be sticking with gold.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Here’s an old photo of ‘Fishtown’, Leland, Michigan. I sure wish I could go back in time and throw a little more background out of focus (if hindsight is 20/20 this is one time it wouldn’t hurt to be a bit blurrier). Oh well. Have a great weekend, everyone!
