Here's my entry. I finally got to do it - my favourite philosopher as an avatar, woohoo. Friedrich Nietzsche in 1882:

Re: ENTER: Misc Avatar Contest: "Sepia"

Remember the poet I used for the 'green'-contest? -well here he is again:


He loved being photographed so there was a lot of images to choose from for this contest -- alas I wasn't able to find any data on the one I zeroed in on - too bad the cameras of the day didn't add meta-data to the photographs

My entry:



He lived from 1805 to 1875 so the time-frame is right and I'm guessing the 'colour' will also be accepted

I'll enter too.

I chose a very important man.

Here's to you, Chief Sitting Bull:



I do not know in which year this particular picture was taken, it was certainly in the 19th century since he died in 1890.

According to this (PDF document - look for image 09i) the original photo was taken in August 1885 by Montreal photographers William Notman & Son. The feathers were later (in 1904?) added or retouched by F.A. Rinehart of Omaha. Some of these details can be made out from writing on the uncropped image.

Alright then, though I cannot use it myself, for I'd run the risk of going all giddy under that smouldering gaze and would no longer be able to post coherently!
