I love going to Living History Day’s at the various parks around the area. I guess being from Virginia I sort of have history in my veins. For this trip, we went to Ft. Dobbs in Statesville, NC. I had never heard of Ft. Dobbs before and really had no idea of what we were going to see. This particular day was rather cold so the Native American actor portion of the exhibit was cancelled. When we walked up to the exhibits there were individuals in character walking around and living life as they would back then. I have to admit that I have no idea which area in time they were portraying because I zoned out into “photography mode.” Whenever I tour places that have a rich history I like to shoot in black and white. For some reason it makes the photos seem more authentic to me.
