PRR 1223 Steam Locomotive

What’s a festive holiday season without a train?

This old workhorse was built in 1905 by the Pennsylvania Railroad’s shop in Altoona and was the prevalent model in North America during the first half of the 19th century.

IF I make the lashes dark 
And the eyes more bright 
And the lips more scarlet, 
Or ask if all be right 
From mirror after mirror, 
No vanity’s displayed: 
I’m looking for the face I had 
Before the world was made. 
What if I look upon a man 
As though on my beloved, 
And my blood be cold the while 
And my heart unmoved? 
Why should he think me cruel 
Or that he is betrayed? 
I’d have him love the thing that was 
Before the world was made. #zelkonedic #wetplatecollodion#analog#collodion #blackandwhite #historicalphotography #oldstyle#old school#style#handmade#art #artphotography

The Angel

I dreamt a dream! What can it mean? 
And that I was a maiden Queen 
Guarded by an Angel mild,
Witless woe was ne’er beguiled! 

And I wept both night and day, 
And he wiped my tears away; 
And I wept both day and night, 
And hid from him my heart’s delight. 

So he took his wings, and fled; 
Then the morn blushed rosy red. 
I dried my tears, and armed my fears 
With ten-thousand shields and spears. 

Soon my Angel came again; 
I was armed, he came in vain; 
For the time of youth was fled, 
And grey hairs were on my head.

Every Night & every Morn 
Some to Misery are Born. 
Every Morn & every Night 
Some are Born to sweet Delight. 
Some ar Born to sweet Delight, 
Some are born to Endless Night. 
We are led to Believe a Lie 
When we see not Thro’ the Eye….
Cropped 8x10 Tintype hand colored.
