Tintype of Father and Daughter with a Naive Painted Backdrop

I like this tintype of a father and daughter sitting on a rustic bench for several reasons. The girl seems less than enthusiastic about the photographic process. She leans back against her father as if for reassurance. Both look directly into the camera lens. The elaborate background of landscape and birds does not have the feel of a professionally painted commercial backdrop. The plants and birds are rather naive in execution.

I spent some time this week in the storage box of tintypes and picked out some that I will be posting over the next few days. Once again I am finding images that I had forgotten but feel are worth sharing.
