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.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Silly Tuesday action?
That might explain why he's holding that mask in front of his face :-)

Except that they are clad in Confederate gray, this reminds me of a scene from the old John Wayne movie "The Horse Soldiers." Nice one, really nice!

The old boy in the blue hat and coat seems to be in a bit of a hurry..Or perhaps he's asking permission to leave the ride. ;>)

He does have a silly expression, with the timing of your shot, as if he was contemplating something. Or perhaps his cellphone is on vibrate.
I'm enjoying your series, you really gives us the feel of the scene.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb ... and it's anyone's guess as to what he was thinking. ;D

Very nice image, it looks like it was also shot from horseback or at least at the same height.

@Ralph Jones: I was on higher ground, and the zoom lens pulled him right up close and personal-like. ;D

Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

Our local PBS station just aired 'City Slickers' last Saturday night. There must be something going around.

Very cool candid! I love their expressions and to think this is almost how it was! Imagine being a photographer back then? You are bringing history back!!!!

Naah! They couldn't have gotten such a good piece of photography then....I wonder if they had the time to think about pictorial memories, too busy bearing the misery of war! It is memorialized nowadays in so many ways - these reenactments included - but they cannot reenact the suffering, the misery, the losses, the absence of so many necessities, which we take for granted nowadays....

19 Feb 2011 2:07pm

@Japanalia: You are absolutely correct ... however there are old photos, some showing the horrible suffering. I appreciate your meaningful comment! ♥

Tim from Ft. Worth, United States

great candid shot, showing movement and action. well done :)
