May as well start sharing my trip with the internet. Here’s a great shot from shooting with A Larue out in the sunset! I’m so thankful they wanted to take my picture!
What a color scheme. I would have a damn hard time deciding how to paint each section of trim on a Victorian.
OH MY GOD THIS IS BEAUTIFUL
a paint job like this requires high quality paint, a lot of patience and a fuckton of masking tape
it’s blond but it’s growing! 5 months on t.
“This is the grave of Francis Wilson who died on the 15th July 1880. She/He was buried as a witch - facing the opposite way and just outside the burial ground. Such an amazing cemetery at Mt Morgan.” Flikr
This is utter hog wash. Although most of the cemetery records were destroyed in a fire in 1900, from what we have to go on it is almost certain that Francis Wilson (male) was a Scottish immigrant. He worked as a blacksmith in Mt. Morgan. Although their grave faces West instead of East, it is not the only one in the cemetery to do so. The graveyard is vastly uncharted so it is not enough to say this stone was placed outside the burial ground when it’s borders are vastly uncertain.
Now, the assertion that Francis Wilson was a witch based on this headstone is historically offensive. The thought that the town would spend the resources and money to bury someone accused of being a witch is ridiculous, let alone that they would mark the stone respectfully with “symbols of witchcraft.” The pentacle at the top of the stone has its history among various esoteric and religious movements, however was not connected with witches until the 20th century when Gardner brought Thelema, Golden Dawn, and grimoiric magic under the term witch. The pentacle was used by the Sumerians, Pythagoreans, the Catholic Church, Agippa, Crowley, and many others, but none of these people would have been happy being called a witch, and I highly doubt Francis Wilson was any different. Granted, this is clearly not a traditional Christian or Catholic grave-stone. The two symbols beneath the pentacle have other connections to occult and esoteric traditions, and Wilson was probably a member of a Fraternity or Lodge, however this does not make him a witch. The most likely case is that he was indeed a Christian or Gnostic. Please at least attempt to be respectful toward the dead, and don’t tickle your fantasies by polluting memories of unrelated persons and recoloring history to your liking.

It’s spreading like wildfire.
There are a lot of components to a Severely Mame performance. Thanks @beastofeden for the picture!
