Colonial Perspectives

It was a tough last few months of 2014, and a trip to Colonial Williamsburg is just what we needed. As I shared in my December blog, KI and I took a friend there. It was her first time. For the last 10 plus years, we have been there over 30 times, and that’s a conservative estimate.

For me to keep my photos of CW fresh, I need to be creative, always thinking of a new angle or perspective to shoot this living history museum. “Historical Textures”  hopefully shows my efforts. This is a photo of the gaol close-up. This gaol(jail) was also in a prominent seen in the mini series “John Adams”. It is an original structure at CW.

The truly creative photos at CW usually present themselves to me. As I am strolling up and down the Duke of Glouster St (or DOG Street), I am constantly looking at new ways to really see the history that surrounds me. Often my photos end up in the digital trash bin because I have not captured the spirit of the town and its history in a new and fresh way. But this trip, I scored! I even chose to create the photo in both color, to remind us of the season, and black and white to evoke the history.

The photo taken is the Peyton Randolph House framed by the stockades near the Courthouse. Please click on the links in this blog to learn more about CW. And if you are ever in the neighborhood and see me wandering DOG Street with my camera, please introduce yourself!

    Kathi, I like all three photographs and am amazed at your talent to not only take the photo but also to ‘see’ the vision.
