Ambrotype of a Moonstruck Young ManAmbrotype of a Moonstruck Young Man

If you’re gonna to be framed in life this isn’t a bad way to be immortalized or eulogized. This one-sixth plate ruby ambrotype shows a studious young man’s portrait that is decorated with a palatial cherub trumpeting mat worthy of a King’s ransom.

And I’m certain the photographer who took his portrait coached him into upgrading his final selection from coach to first class. If you are going to look ordinary why not project extraordinary when given the Option. This gentleman wanted to get a lady or ladies attention? I’ve heard it said that women fall in love with their ears and men with their eyes. A photo is worth a thousand words…you can only guess which language he wanted to use.
