I've always wondered what my great great great grandchildren will make of my photos. I'm sure it will be incredibly confusing way off in the future, placing me in this time period.
A kinder person would date the back of photos for future generations.
I however, want to screw with their minds just a little more.
At the Civil War reenactment last weekend we visited D.E. Geraths, an authentic period photographer who takes tintypes and ambrotypes exactly as they were done during the Civil War. No photoshop, no new cameras, it's the real deal.
Most of us in attendance got at least one tintype done, and Shawn even ditched the shirt to see if his tattoos would show up (you might remember last year my brother got a tintype and we saw that his arms looked inkless. I still don't understand why...)
Sam and I posed for ours right after he was on the battlefield, it actually kind of creeps me out how "real" it looks.
The next day the photographer was taking a wedding photo at the reenactment, how cool would that be?!
