Time Warp

As you can probably tell from recent posts, I like "Living History" events. The costumes are fun to see and photograph, and the scenes make me think what it was like to live during an earlier era.

At the recent American Revolution event, I really enjoyed a glimpse into the past. Of course, we cannot stay there, and modern life reasserts itself quickly.

No doubt the soldiers of 240 years ago did not have signage for "British Camp" and "Colonial Camp." However, I'm sure they would have been happy to have motor vehicles for hauling their gear!


  1. I've never been to such a reenactment but I think it would be fun to see. Your photos are really great.

  2. When I lived in Alaska, every year they have Golden Days to celebrate the discovery of gold. People dress up in the clothes of the day. It's a fun time for all the people.

  3. It's reenactment time around here also.

  4. I enjoy these sort of things as well. What a contrast in that shot with the kids- period clothing and a child wearing a Batman shirt.
