I love that this image incites a deeper, more emotional response than much of the artwork available on DA; and does it in a way that is...


Napoleonic Room Divider
detail of a room divider from the Napoleon Exhibit shown at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. I brightened everything quite a bit in post-processing to counteract the lighting limitations of a museum exhibit and (understandable!) forbiddance of flash photography. I suspect the red is cochineal (or possibly carmine), as it period appropriate and is still vibrant 200 years later. I also suspect the dark colored fibers are actually silver that has tarnished. 
Napoleonic Dentistry
No, really. This dental set belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte. Apparently he was big into dental care and used Opium toothpaste and it worked for him. Few uses for this little surgery kit. Part of the special Napoleon exhibit shown by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, VA. Took quite a few photos in the exhibit because photography is welcome, so long as there is no flash. 


United States
A young woman who works as a Historical Interpreter and enjoys traveling and taking photos in her spare time.
    So, I've taken a bit of a hiatus from posting, though I have been taking photographs. I just got out of training for work a week or so ago, 3 weeks of history boot-camp to expand my knowledge base so I can interpret more than one building. I am now able to interpret the Governor's Palace, the Capitol, and the Gaol (or Jail, if you don't spend every day in the 18th century). My latest photos have required little to no editing which is great, because I have a LOT of catching up to do on my follows. Not much time for commenting or critiquing at the moment, but I am certainly favoriting! I've got thousands of images to go thorough and I try to at least expand the thumbnail for every picture because so often I think the picture is of one thing in the thumb, but when I click upon it, it is something else entirely!
