Tintypes and nests

Here are photos of two of the tintypes I bought in Gloucester this weekend. The actual tintypes are quite crisp. Unfortunately my photos are rather soft in focus. The halo in the photo on the left is oil paint that was added by me ala an artist I saw at the Lisa Sette gallery a few years ago. It's not my original idea but it is so intriguing I feel compelled to go through the action of making one of these photo paintings to see what it instigates.
