Where Have I Been?

I’m a big fan of Instagram and use it a lot. I love the rough, touristy, snapshot quality of the filters and frames, it feels closer to the work I used to do when I actually shot film (I like Camera+, too, especially the pinhole feature). The library joined Instagram a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been photographing the building and collections, and posting on their behalf.

If you are an Instagram user, you can find me either at bdoylephotos or dukeuniversitylibraries. And if you friend the library on Instagram, you can help boost the stats for my NARA talk next month!

Beautiful Loops and Whorls

I find the combination of loopy 19th Century writing and swirly mold pools to be incredibly beautiful.

Nice Knobs

This is from a 1939 hand-drawn WPA map of Johnston County that we found today. It’s a very cool map, and we all are betting it has a great story behind it but no one knows what that story is.¬†Does anyone know what the difference is between a “knob,” “bald” and “mountain?”

Job Security

It’s nice to be needed. And look, it even has my initial on the shelf.
