a good day for a tintype.

while i generally avoid posting photos of myself online, i have to make a brief exception today thanks to the amazing san francisco studio, photobooth.  i had a tintype done (yes, like from the 1800s) and was so pleased that i wanted to share.  you only get one shot and have to stay painfully still, but the detail is exquisite, and getting to leave with an actual object in hand (they last 200 years!) is a happy antithesis to the modern digital experience.  a fairly recent addition to my hood, photobooth is a gallery, shop, and studio in one, and you can either sit down and have a portrait done or peruse their drool-worthy selection of old school cameras.  now i want one every year for the rest of time!  go here to find out more.
