This past weekend I spent time in the days of the cowboys and gunfight’s in the streets. The Old Bedford Village presents an Old West reenactment every year and I must say it is well worth taking the time to visit and enjoy.
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.
This is just a quick shot from my trip to Old Bedford Village for the French and Indian War reenactment. I will post more as soon as I finish editing them.
Last night we talked about one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Another one is reenactments. I try to make it to as many as possible every summer. This year is the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. If everything goes right I’ll be there for the reenactments this year.
This post is a photo of a group of British Soldiers having a cup of coffee and relaxing. This was taken at a reenactment at Fort Necessity National Battlefield in Fayette County, Pa.
