Stunning work.

Edgar Allan Poe, I absolutely adore him!

Yes, I agree: stunning work! It's a big deal in nearby Baltimore.

Great photo - looks almosst 3-D - like an old daguerreotype. Too bad you don't have a Poe daguerreotype laying around . . . I understand he didn't take many pics, so the ones that are in this world are very costly . . . Oh what I wish I could find in my grandmother's attic . . . . Have a great day. Thanks for sharing.

Baltimore celebrated the life and works of Edgar Allan Poe with a year long city wide festival.

Oh, I love this. I can't believe he died when he was only 40. I grew up reading everything by Poe and can't wait until my boys are old enough to enjoy the ride themselves!
