Ask me anything   About the Blog (and a bit about the blogger)   

Central Floridian - photographer, illustrator, and (occasionally) very bad writer. This blog is mostly for my drawings and non-photographic-related creative-ish stuff.


Rowing Crew, photographed by Notman Studio, Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1871.
Musée McCord


I have to admit: I think most nineteenth-century sportswear is so cool. Totally dig the striped trunks, and the loose shirt-jacket-type things with their shield shaped pockets and contrasting (I’d imagine they’re bone) buttons.
That said, I like being in boats. And rowing, I guess, is sort of fun - even though I can’t even keep something as small as a kayak on a straight course. To row as a sport, though, I’d probably fail at it. Sucks, I guess. Sometimes I wish I was sporty and stuff - then I think “Bah. Too much work” and sit back down on the couch.
