    OUTDOOR RIVER.jpg Thanks MonteCristo,

    Here is an interesting article,
    I think I have a scan of the image they are discussing somewhere.....nah...not the same one but I will insert here for similarity.
    NOT the same snapshot specifically the article is about but the principle is the same for all images above and below this post.
    I attended a lecture once in Rochester about the capital image posted above and the subject matter was the same....molecular detail.

    It is astonishing that after 175 years the daguerreotype still beats both film and digital photography in its ability to capture image detail. As an example, take a look at the “Cincinnati Panorama of 1848.” It shows a two mile section of the city waterfront taken from across the Ohio River. The panorama is made up of eight relatively small 6.5 x 8.5 inch silver plates, yet they each contain an amazing amount of detail. With a microscope you can read store signs and count the number of bricks in a wall, as you shown in the photo above.That’s far better rendition of detail than even the best digital camera is capable of capturing

    Thanks, I appreciate your thoughts, seen any of these "poloroids" up your way ?
    I had a few lined up yesterday afternoon to post with the river image above and my laptop flamed out on overheat

    I have seen some in the past in the antique shops around the area, however, I wasn't that interested until you started posting your images. Now I will have to find some free time and go looking for some. You have really sparked my interest. Thanks and good luck with the tile. BTW, sounds like your laptop either has the fan clogged up with dust etc or maybe even failing. Do a google on the brand/model and look for how to clean the fan or even replace. Heat is the enemy of electronics, and a malfunctioning or poorly functioning cooling system will cause errors and eventually failure.

    Settle up on the garnishment of playing in "their" system, where the rules
    are changing and it is impossble to know them all.

    Are we better off in these times than of 150 or 160 years ago like the folks in these images ?
    Or those from even a different time ?
    I oft think of that.

    Yes, interesting braids.
    I lean towards a couple of ideas since I know not of the origins of the image or where it was found etc.
    As is common with so many like items that surface these days.
    The mat had coloring that is European or South American perhaps.
    The hair is another clue.
    Also, the costuming.
    There was a " revival " of the process in the 1890's and seems to me that this might also be a clue.
    Regards Ebie.

    SEA CAPTAIN.jpg Re: Recent Addition

    Recent addition to the home of Haystack.
    I liked the character of this image a whole lot.
    Kind of like an old pour bar,
    or the piece o eight that Walt posted.
    Or some of that awesome stuff on Fasts' thread.
    Lots of character.
    Interesting jacket , not to mention the hands.
    A note on hands, sometimes the lens quality can enlarge them a bit because
    of depth of field issues. This issue occurs mostly on older / early images which this one is probably not
    as the mat and preserver are fairly ornate and developed.
    Working hands these are.
    I once owned an image ( once ...key word...now I remind myself of the starter marriage...LOL )
    of a newspaper guy whose hands were black with ink. He was holding a newspaper in the image and his hands
    were truly incredible. But I digress, back to the factory...:cheerful:

    D10-72.jpg D11-008.jpg D12-014.jpg D12-015.jpg Ahhhhhh, the beauty of a silvered plate that holds on it a secret snapshot of times past.
    We take so much in our lives for granted these days.
    These images were held, at one time, and by some now, in the highest regard as they were a prized possession .

    D12-59.jpg D12-87.jpg D12-191.jpg It is a hoot for me to view and study old images such as these or some of the fabulous ones Searcher
    has posted as well as some of the others here on GIM...they have poise, character, attention to clothing detail,a seriousness about life maybe ( ? ) etc
    and then IN CONTRAST to view some of the more modern subjects we discuss here such as " Urban Beach Weekend " and the like.
    What has changed in society ? And interesting subject for me always.

    ff_daguerreotype1_f.jpg tinted 23.jpg HOUSE OUTDOOR.jpg MAN WITH DOG AND GUN.jpg Re: Daguerreotypes

    One of my favs of all time is on the Random Pics thread.
    It is the one showing the street scene and it is captioned with a statement about the implementation
    of the tax...errr...sorry, garnishment system we now waddle through and are saddled with...
    Hard work was rewarded in days past. In fact, seems to me reward was almost inevitable if one applied themselves.
    These days ( some days anyways ) it seems as if you are penalized for it. JMHO and YMMV of course...:cheerful:
    Its ALL good...just rambling a bit...

    Hey Gringott,
    " Whats shakin !?!? " :cheers:
    Got a couple of snags for my humble Haystack collection.
    Will post a scan of them soon.
    This stuff keeps me from going nuts at all the wackiness that seems to surround us these days.

    Great stuff. I just love these pictures with the "prized possessions", i.e., guns knifes swords and dogs.

    Keep it up! I haven't found any worth buying yet, but I am sure I will.
