Tintype: Vintage boxers

Photo given to my by Anna Gurley Photography

Usually I don't blog about photos I find around town at local antique stores, but I wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to Anna Gurley for being gracious enough to give me this amazing photograph! For those that do not know, this process which was popular in the 19 century was unique in that it was a wet process and one would have to have their subjects stand still for what were seconds to minutes to make an exposure! Imagine that.. ok now stand still... I'm going to make a sandwich.. I will be back in a few minutes!
