Greetings everyone,
 Most of you know the kind of work that I do. It has to look old, beat up run down and has generally seen better days, so as you can well imagine when I saw this photo of a New Orleans abandoned mansion with all its character, I had to try and reproduce it.  The photo didnt show the whole building, so I only made a part of it. Here are some shots.

The Lee Photographic Gallery

Greetings everyone,
During the Civil War, there were two photographers from Richmond  JW and WW Davies. They were so Pro Southern and Pro Confederate that they named their business after Robert E Lee. The logo you see on the building is extremely rare even tho there is an example of an envelope dated 1875 from these brothers and their business, 10 years after the end of the war. I'm lucky enough to have a photo fron the Civil War era with this backmark on it. I have never seen another one. Here are some shots of my latest creation.
