Today’s photo comes from the civil war reenactment at Old Bedford Village. If you haven’t noticed I really like the reenactments. This gentleman was watching the streets in town while guarding over the local jail house.
The intense look on his face just really caught my eye and the decision to go black and white was simple.
Hope you enjoy. And tomorrow I will be attending an old western reenactment, so get ready for some cowboys.
Todays photo comes from the Civil War reenactment that I attended at Old Bedford Village this past weekend. After the battle many of the soldiers lay wounded, dying, or dead on the field. This photo shows a Doctor working hard to help an unlucky solider that was wounded when he was shot through the cheek during the battle.
One of my favorite parts of these reenactments is learning about how things took place, how the soldiers lived, ate, and fought side by side. And this reenactment depicted a great deal of the day-to-day lives of the soldiers before and after the battle, including surgery for the wounded and how they were cared for after surgery.
Caught these two ladies taking a stroll through town during the Civil War reenactment at Old Bedford Village.

Today’s photo is from a civil war reenactment that I attended today at Old Bedford Village in Bedford, Pa. This was my first time there for the civil war reenactment and I must say it was a very good one. There was plenty of things to see, participate in and photograph throughout the day.
Over the next couple of days I’ll post some of the images that I took today. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Tonight I have a couple of shots that I did on my latest trip to Gettysburg. If you are able to visit Gettysburg I highly recommend taking the time see what Gettysburg has to offer. This is an area rich in history and I learn something new every time I visit. I would also like to point out that this year is the 150th anniversary of the battle and they have many great events planned for the entire year.
Hope you enjoy!
Yesterday I had a chance to venture to Gettysburg. I’m posting a couple of shots but will post a few more as I get the processing done.
Hope you enjoy!

Wow I was just noticing that I haven’t posted since July. Wow how the time flies. Well I guess a small update is in order, since the last posting I have received a promotion at work which has taken all of my fun time away. Isn’t it funny how that happens? We work so that we can do the things that we want to do but then work gets in the way of all the things that we want to do. What a vicious cycle….
Well I did manage to get out one day and took a ride to one of my favorite places to visit, Gettysburg, Pa. I have spent many days wandering around the battlefield and always manage to see something new or different. This trip was no exception. I managed to come across a statue of a solider hiding behind a rock near the bottom of Little Round Top. Now the exciting thing about this is that I have been driving past this spot for years now and I have never seen this statue before. It goes to show you that sometimes we miss the obvious when looking for the extraordinary. And sometimes the obvious turns out to be the extraordinary.
Well I hope you enjoy the photos and I’ll try to post a little more frequently.
This is the view that a Union Soldier would have seen from atop Little Round Top during the battle of Gettysburg in July 1863.
One of my favorite statues in Gettysburg is this one of General Warren which is found on Little Round Top
This is the hidden treasure I was referring to in the beginning of this post. I like the shadows in the black and white version of this photograph.
