I'm not sure I have the exact words to express how surprising this photo is. I wonder what they were doing. Any thoughts?

How did you ever find this! Funny and weird at the same time.

I am absolutely mesmerized by this photograph! I sit here rationalizing what they were thinking. In the South photographing the dead is fairly common and in the late 1800s - early 1900s often a post-mortem photograph is the ONLY photograph. I read of a little girl who drown and the article further stated the "photographer was called". I would love to know more about the deceased in this picture. GOOD FIND!
