Memorial Park 10/3/11

Went live sketching with my friend Mark in Memorial Park the other day. I wish WordPress had a photo size between medium and large; this is too small. Anyway, it was the perfect night – no clouds in the sky, dragonflies all around, and good conversation.

William Terriss

I recently discovered “memento mori” photography which is all about posing dead people in pictures, really interesting and twisted stuff. Somehow that lead to Victorian actors, which is how I found the dashing William Terriss.  William  became this great English stage actor, and his daughter, Emmaline, followed in his footsteps. Then this unfavorable actor he used to help (financially) goes mad and STABS him to death. More William Terriss pics to come.
