there's nothing here to Discover.

Here is a photo of the French writer Victor Hugo (he wrote the Hunchback of the Notre Dame) on his death-bed. The picture is made by the late 19th century photographer/novelist/caricaturist/balloonist/journalist Gaspar-Félix Tournachon, also known as Félix Nadar.
I think this is an amazing picture, especially the composition and the lighting. I also think it is quite interesting and somewhat morbid to shoot somebody on his death-bed, but still, there is an element of sereneness to it, that attracts me to it.

This post was just meant to show you a sign of life.
