Sixth Plate

LOVE THAT TIE! What a fancy silk cravat the worried looking subject wore for his formal resealed sixth plate daguerreotype. That certainly was not a matching vest underneath his unbuttoned darker suit jacket. The guy even ran thick fingers through his hair to finish off his appearance! Red tint was applied to the chap?s face and lips. Those pale eyes made silent inquires while the lens was uncapped and the exposure was executed. The curious tonality actually is impressive when the whole leather case is opened. Also, you have to ask yourself, did the fellow sneak in his PET FLY and place him on the right lapel of his coat when he wasn?t looking? Lovely patina flows gently inside the oval brass mat.
