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!
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.
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.
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
