For World Photography Day For Weekend Showcase Today, Flickr posted an announcement: "World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Louis Daguerre. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World.”" Perhaps you will recall that I have mentioned my love of costuming and the tin of "spare heads" kept in a crafts room cupboard. A Daguerrotype seemed to be in order here, so I dragged out a wig, a white blouse I've only had a few occasions to wear, a silk scarf and an antique brooch. Took me about five minutes to get into the part, and then (having put the cart before the horse) I started setting up my "studio." Camera on tripod, piece of white cardstock taped to the front door. An overhead light and a floor lamp provided the illumination as I perched on a chair, having locked in the focus on the distance. It took a few tries to get a satisfactory pose, but when I had a couple of options in the bag, I loaded them into the computer. Next step was the processing. I put an oval vignette around the colored image and merged the layers. A little experimenting with the Time Machine showed me that the image needed to be cropped because there was too much white space around the subject, so once that was achieved, I converted the whole thing to a daguerrotype complete with photo border. I wasn't quite satisfied with the look, so added a tinted glamour filter to soften the appearance and richen the color. Voila! Perfesser Crow steps into the Wayback Machine and emerges in the mid-1800s to teach English in a one-room schoolhouse. As always, I ask that you please refrain from posting graphics in your comments. Thanks.
Loft Living
Loft Living
This is the living space in my loft. It very open and light partly due to the large windows. As you can see I adore antiques. My building was converted from an office building built in 1913 into loft apartments. The landmark building located in Downtown Dallas is listed on both the Texas and National Registries of Historic Places. As far as this room, I am the designer. I have a BA in interior design/art, but never obtained my ASID Certification. As far as the building: The Kirby Building faces Akard & Main Streets in Downtown Dallas. The architectural firm of Barnett, Hayes, & Barnett of St. Louis designed this 17 story Gothic Revival skyscraper. Lang & Witchell of Dallas were the associate architects. The facades of the Kirby were created with terra cotta. The terra cotta has many details, shapes, and images within its sculptural relief in friezes, panels, cornices, and finials. The Kirby was originally built in 1913 to supplement the Adolphus Hotel (corner of Commerce and Akard). In 1999, the Kirby Building was converted into 156 apartments by architects Corgan Associates of Dallas.
