Canons were repeatedly fired...

I tried to catch the flame, but never did.

* I'm dealing w/hubby's dementia one day at a time; so far so good. I do read and greatly appreciate your comments as time allows.

Photos enhance my memories and keep them vivid, transporting
me back in time, hence my ‘go to’ tool is my camera when possible.

You are certainly getting us all in the mood for the Civil War. Another excellent shot. I love the fellow with his hand cupped to his ear. Is he waiting for the next blast?

@Marion: Thanks, Marion, and yes, MANY had their hands cupped, because it was a deafening roar when the canons' multiple shots fired!!!

Chris from South Jersey, United States

Great action shot - captured nicely. Even though you don't see the flame you can almost feel the "boom" of the cannon with the smoke and the postures of the men.

@Chris: Thank you, Chris ...... but you don't know how hard I tried to 'catch' that flame! <grin>

The guy to the right has his hand Cupped behind his ear as if signaling to repeat, 'cause he can't many candid emotions in there, way to go!!!

@Lorraine: Thank you, Lorraine .... it was so realistic to watch ... and the noise of the canons was LOUD!!!

Porcsin from Debrecen, Hungary

The old man is squating? Why? He isn't want a shot from him or why? It gives a little humour to the shot!
And the man in the red hat is same funny! "Excuse me? Could you repeat it?"

@Porcsin: The older man is squatting as the canon recoils from the firing and the noise is VERY loud.
These men 'survive' maybe 50 canon shots - much noise, and much excitement! .... Thank you for your comment.

T-Daddy from Dachsbach, nähe Erlangen, Germany

Great shot, and I do not mean with it the cannon. :-)

@Peter Miller: Thank you, Peter ........ boy, I did TRY, but the flame is an instantaneous event, as you know!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Your series of photos are so good they are like a story book. Great clarity here. It appears this was a very nice event. Great shooting Judy.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb. Mine couldn't be more different from your latest series yet we're only a little over an hour apart in distance and a century apart in timing!
