Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

From noted law student and Holmseian nemesis Irene Adler, a link to a stunning Library of Congress exhibition of the colorized photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii. From the website: Obviously, I was attracted to the architecture photos, which are just stunning. Go look for yourself, but whatever voodoo technology was used to produce these images seems to have worked extraordinarily well. All the photos look fresh and vibrant and not the least bit oddly colored or 'off'. Wonderful stuff, yet strangely melancholic to ponder, in that many of these places no longer exist in the form shown in the photos.
Oh, by the way--here's a link to explain the voodoo digichromatography used to get the images from the plates.
