Carnival

Victor+Hugo+Victor_Hugo

Everything being a constant carnival, there is no carnival left. Victor Hugo

A lot of pictures on the internet of him holding his head, don’t know if that was the style of the day but it also could have been the time it took to make a picture and he wanted to be comfortable during the time it took to exposure the film.

Of course good of Victor has a Facebook Page. Never mind that he died only 6 years after Thomas Edison fully developed the light bulb for everyday use. But hey if they are still making movies of my work 128 years after I am dead I will probably have a Wikipedia link and a Facebook page too. VictorHugo1884 See what I said about holding his hand.
