HIS WAS LATE. Mold spiders and a scratch above the gent?s head are plainly visible on the highly reflective surface of the resealed sixth plate that was taken after 1855. This should be considered a classic male bust portrait in the most pure sense. The illumination was excellent on the sitter?s face. His maker asked him to turn his torso away from the camera and angle his head slightly back in the direction of the camera. Dried watermarks are visible on the fellow?s jacket lapel. A mold spider is lodged on his tinted cheek. When the complete leather case is opened, beware of the man attempting to leap into your space!
