Happy Birthday dear friend.


  1. Wow!!! How do you get the raven to lean out of the frame like that?
    Stunning work.

  2. Edgar Allan Poe, I absolutely adore him!

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

  4. 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.

  5. Love this!
    And he would too :)

  6. I have an affinity for Poe.....it's natural, my name IS Lenore..............

  7. I agree it's stunning.

    Is all that we see or seem
    But a dream within a dream?

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


  8. He looks good for his age. :) Love the image!

  9. 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!
