On the table, and inside...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 22 January 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This is the fourth in a number of shots I took Jan. 17th, at our local Civil War Reenactment.
Most sleep in their tents and cook outdoors, though I have to admit there are a few RVs off in an inconspicuous parking area.

PS: Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog. Overtime hours at work prohibit my responding to all the individual comments.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/60 second F/5.6 ISO 100 45 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Soft and pretty. Full of nostalgia! A day gone past...Bravo~ (pssst...I would probably sleep in the RV!)

@Tracey: Thanks, Tracey ... and the nights have recently been below freezing so I'm sure they were COLD!

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Beautifully reconstructed, I would love to spend the night in there. A fabulous shot Judy.

@MaryB: Thank you, Mary, but it was below freezing in the early mornings!

PS: How is the log cabin?

Barbara from Florida, United States

Well framed and very inviting to this cozy space. I admire the layers of clothing hanging and water pitchers, along with the cigar. Well captured, Judy.

@Barbara: There were many items to capture and I really didn't know where to focus the camera so I let it do it automatically! :D

Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, United States

I love the angle you shot this at.......really evokes time of olde.....

@Susan: Thanks, Susan!

Chris from South Jersey, United States

what a nice view - into history! I am sure that no matter how much they tried to be authentic, that things were still a little bit more sanitized than in the 1860s......great shot Judy!

@Chris: For sure ... as I wrote elsewhere, in the 1860's the soldiers were rag tag, dirty, weary young boys (some women dressed as men) and men. The reenactment is definitely not the same, but does keep some of our history alive.

Fliss from Melbourne Beach, United States

You have to admit... it would be interesting to be a fly on the wall from back then...
My nephew is BIG into the Civil War and can tell you anything about it.. he even lives in Gettysburg... need to go visit him there.

23 Jan 2009 2:15am

@Fliss: Oh, go, Fliss ... Gettysburg is one of our FAVORITE places ... we took our children there in 1975 for an unforgettable visit. Mike and I have been back several other times. ... GO!

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

After looking at this shot of yours - which is an eye-opener - I start believeing that these people who do the reenactments live in a world all of their own! Yes, as one of the visitors remarked...more sanitized.....but still they take it seriously!

23 Jan 2009 10:12am

@Japanalia: They do take it seriously; you are so right. They are history buffs and just love taking part.
