I had something on my mind…

but it wasn’t much.  I had to post this photograph.  It was taken a few months ago when a group was filming at the Park where I work.  After the filming the cameraman asked if he could take a portrait.  I said yes, well he brought a copy by for me today.  Here it is.

Mr. Shepherd in the Cabinet Shop

His name is Travis Lovell.  This image is from his blog site, I will scan and post another, I didn’t know this was a small print.




  1. Woa… wait a second. Isn’t this an ambrotype from my website? I didn’t realize it was such a clear image.

  2. Gary,

    He actually shot this with Polaroid film (so it is antiquated). Now if you would like I have several ambrotypes of myself that you can put on your website (Toolemera).

  3. Gary — great site you have. And I learned something I’d never heard of — cyanotypes. Apparently, I have a cyanotype of my great-grandfather. I had assumed it was some sort of odd photocopy of an original photo. I have scanned it and put it on my flickr site


    Thanks again! Made my day.
