From Nature

Editorial Comment for this plate:

THE lovely bit of shaded road, which is photographed “from nature,” by Mrs. Leminos, and which we were fortunate enough to secure for our readers, does not require any word of explanation or praise by us. The picture speaks for itself. It is simple in subject and treatment. The scene was selected so that it composes pleasantly in the photograph, and there is a charm furnished by the light and shade, which every one must feel. Mrs. Leminos, is evidently an artist. It is not often we find a more satisfying picture “from nature” to show our readers. Mr. Edwards is entitled to credit for his admirable treatment of the subject, in photo-gravure. The tone chosen, in which to present it, is certainly most happy. (p. 253)
