I enjoyed taking these photos though there must be something wrong with the camera because I look old. Above me is the all seeing eye, the hourglass, and the skull and crossbones.
These photos were taken with a timer so obviously there were some mistakes.
Unpredictable $#!+*&% camera!
I like this one but I need to trim my van dyke.
Me and God’s eye are both looking at you.
This is the garment I’m wearing under my jacket. It’s a little soiled and stained but I haven’t tried to clean it. It would have been worn in an Odd Fellows’ ceremony. I’m assuming they would have worn trousers or tights too. What kind of shoe goes with this? It would be a perilous choice. My suggestions would be either a leather gladiator boot/sandal or blue velvet loafers.
That’s the eye of God and three links. I know this is machine made but it’s pretty wonderful work.
This is my homage to the head of the surrealists, Andre Breton
This is the surrealists Andre Breton. The photo is from a great book called Self Portrait Man Ray. It’s by Man Ray and it’s filled with wonderful and bizarre images. You should check it out. If your local library doesn’t have it ask them to inter-library loan it OR buy it.
odd fellows DADA. I think I have too many visuals and I need more handwritten text. It’s an attempt.
I found some “hoodwinks” on ebay. That’s supposedly what they’re called. They’re made out of bakelite and probably from the 1940s. I had to take pictures of myself in them no matter how goofy I look.
The top part, sticking out, comes down and renders the wearer totally sightless. It’s my understanding they were used in secret ceremonies. They appear very steampunk and yet they were manufactured before there was such a thing as steampunk.
My book, The Odd Fellows, was released in December of 2013.
