GOT OUR NEW STRAW HATS! Which meant it was time to visit a daguerreotypist to have a resealed quarter plate record made! The operator snugged two chairs together and directed his well-groomed patrons to take their seats. To fit inside his brass oval mat the man realized that the fellows would need to touch arms in the middle. Looking into the men’s sparkling blue eyes reveals the lighting scheme inside the room. A large window was on the right and an enormous reflector was placed opposite, hence the very even illumination. Naturally the brown circles of oxidation could have been removed however the original condition was so spectacular that Casey and I decided to leave the highly reflective surface as you see it. Stunning clarity and lovely tonality is immediately apparently when their whole leather case is opened.
