To answer a question I posed last week with the couple in movement...they were at a dance.

On the evening of the re enactment, they finished off the day with a 18th century dance (I think Minuet is the term). It was a great way to top of a day of re living history. The music was of the time period, the actors stayed in character and the sight was magical. If you ever have the opportunity to spend a day re visiting the past...don't pass up the opportunity.

Wow - awesome shot! It took me a few minutes to realize what the picture was. It looks like several spirits from the past stepped into your photo and started to dance!

Bobbi...that is exactly how I felt when I viewed the picture after getting home!

Hi Dan, what a terrific photo -- such a great sense of movement and the light is wonderful!

Mary,
Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the kind words. This is the kind of image that one either likes or dislikes...nothing in between. Some folks like a clear images better. I however see a place for both types. These often allow for more interpretation.

Dan- I'm so glad we found each other's blogs! Your work is fantastic. I look forward to finding inspiration from you work. Thanks for sharing! :) I hope you don't mind if I give you a little "shout out" to let some of my fellow bloggers know about you. Happy summer!

Thank you Miss H....feel free to let your blogger fiends know about the site...I appreciate the exposure! This also might be a site that your English students can interpret the photos as well or feel free to grab amy photos for your English students blog. I am an English/French major of many years ago so I am partial to students of the language! Thanks again.

I loved all of your shots from the reenactment, but this one might be my favorite. It's so haunting but so lovely at the same time.

Thanks Heather...as I mentioned before, this is the kind of shot you either like or don't care for at all. It just depends on the type of photo one likes.
