. . . from the archives #52: Baby Seymour—Eugene, 1984

Mike was wandering around an old cemetery in Eugene with tripod and twin-lens reflex when he spotted Baby Seymour’s tombstone almost covered with ivy. After developing the negative and printing it, he noticed the spider lurking in the lower right.

Although the current removal of the vines and debris is more respectful, photographically speaking the overgrown look is much preferred.

So, they cleared the ivy from the cemetery? I much prefer it with ivy, tho I do like the "shadow version" too. (or is it a "ghost" ;-)

. . . and the spider is a nice touch, too.

I consider this the "real" Baby Seymour from the good old days.

Mike Mundy said...

Yes indeed.

BTW, while I was doing my Baby Seymour research, I discovered that there's a Baby Seymour blog.

I looked at the Baby Seymour blog. I won't be doing that again. I'm sticking with you and your version.
