Photography in the 1870s

A friend from Colorado sent these pictures this morning and I was reminded again of how much I'm enjoying writing Elizabeth Westbrook's story (From a Distance, releasing in 2008).

Elizabeth is a photographer, a woman before her time. So not only does she view the world a bit differently, she also sees it differently than we do through her camera lens. She sees in black and white (and reversed and upside down but that's for the story...).

Check out the pictures below and see the mastery of God's handiwork--whether in living color, or in black and white, as Elizabeth might have captured it using the wet plate process.

Thanks, Delmar, for sharing these pictures.

And check back later for more recommended reads....
