A cannon in camp...

Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 24 January 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This is the sixth of a number of shots taken Jan. 17th, at our local Civil War Reenactment.
I love the color of the cannon set against the dappled light on the tents.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/80 second F/6.3 ISO 100 75 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.

All is quiet. With just the tents and canon in this image it really fills my imagination.
The authenticity of everything is incredible. A wonderful series Judy.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb ... I'm having a time crunch and can't get around to everyone. :(

Great shot and composition. I like the forest background also. Makes me imagine the sounds and voices of the civil war

i like the shadows on the tent,gives it a very idyllic feel to it,though i wouldnt want to sleep anywhere near the cannon!:)

@tyan: I think I'd feel safer sleeping near a cannon than far away from one that might 'shoot' at my camp! xx
