Glass views, page five - The USA, Africa, Middle East, Turkey, and unidentified views



Glass is difficult to photograph -there are various marks caused by light reflection. I will try to mention all marks that actually appear on the images. Some views are much lighter than others. In general that is because the sun came out when I was photographing some - a rare occurence in England. The camera has struggled with a few - especially the interior statue views with a black opaque background. It has decided to put red spots and milky reflections in here and there but, in general, I think you will agree that the photos are pretty good.Images are taken photographically (scanners do not work with glass views due to refraction). They are all taken in natural sunlight and are not enhanced or sharpened. Where there is an expanse of blank sky I have moved in on the image where possible and cut out the sky area. The full extent of each view can be seen on the image of the whole view. First image is the left and the second is the right.

There are some views with minor damage which I have included. All damage is noted. Apart from the odd single-sheet view, these are all professional views - many by Ferrier and Soulier.

Postage on glass views will be charged at cost to us. As an indication, one view costs $18 to the US. For $75 we can get secure insured shipping from Fedex for 2 kg (4.5 lbs) in weight. This represents about 12 views plus packaging. Please note: We GUARANTEE safe arrival.
Please enjoy these views as I have, and marvel at their brilliance. Each thumbnail, when clicked, will produce a large image.
