    One of my favorite subkjects is historical recreations.

    Although one can never truly relive history, at recreations I have found a number of people who have became so wrapped up in their characters that they bring a pseudo reality that TV, movies, and print media can never duplicate.

    During the last few weekends I was privileged to witness a couple of cannon demonstration recreations. I wish I could post audio of the talks I had with some of the amazing people I spoke with.

    All photos were shot with a Nikon D50 and Nikkor 24MM-120MM f3.5-f4.5 AF-D lens with aperture priority AE.

    I hope they are enjoyed.

    The above were taken at George rogers Clark State Park at a recreation of the Battle of Pecuwe where the British tried to retake cannons stolen by Clark and used to defend the Miami valley of Ohio.

    The gentleman on the far left is the retired head of the history dept at nearby Wittenburg University. Next to him is an amazing font of revolutionary war data.

    The above is a US Civil War cannon recreation and the cannon's crew that was taken just outside of Lebanon, Ohio.

    And the Brady effect attempted again.

    Getting the correct amount of faux grain and low contrast is challenging.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    love the color shots and the abe lincoln and the guy with the big beard... some of your black and white "retro" shots could use some help, particularly the one where i can see some colored granieness... i figure some vignette and a lil more work and they could be better

    over all good shoot! :thumbup:
