A bit ago I twitpic-ed a picture of the first soldier below because I found myself awed and inspired by the photo- his military clothes, his delicate yet masculine features, and even the intricate gold framing fully enveloped me. As I thought more about it, I became even more haunted and fascinated by his photo and by the rest of the series. They've since become my prominent muses for this fall season. I even talk to them sometimes (hey, someone has to approve my MANfits!) but that's probably something I should talk to my state ordered shrink about.... anyways, the ease and simplicity of these old world portraits are definitely noteworthy. Enjoy.
