A Few Shots from Gettysburg

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!

150 Years Ago

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.  I have all intentions of making it there this year during the reenactments in July.

These are a couple of the statues on the Confederate side.  The gentleman on the horse is General Grant and the other photo is from Pickett’s Charge.GB Grant

 

A Vision of Black and White

For todays post I thought I would explore some of my older photos post some black and white conversions.  I’ve always been fascinated with black and white photography and have found that the absence of color makes me look deeper into the image.  Without color we have a tendency to see the detail that was always there and that, I think, is what makes black and white so fascinating.

Hope you enjoy the photos and feel free to let me know what you think.

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

This is my 2012 in photos.   Some of these photos were taken with projects in mind such as the abandoned buildings, some were just subjects I came across, and others were planned trips to some of my favorite places like Gettysburg.  I hope that you have had a great 2012 and are looking forward to an even better 2013.  Enjoy and let me know which photo you like the best.
