History Alive 2013 – Napoleonics   Leave a comment

Last weekend, I managed to get to my favourite event. History Alive 2013

I am always thankful when I go there to the organisers and re-enactors who put so much effort into organising the event and make it a great adventure, this year I only got to go on the Sunday, next year will try and go both days.

My favourite period is Napoleonic and will start with a few photos of them.

Possibly my favourite photo from the day is Michelle Spano as a French Cavalry.

I am always happy to get good photos of the firing Muskets

I managed to get to History Alive on Saturday morning for a couple of  hours, always a treat for photographer

Lots of colours in the different costumes with re-enactors covering a multitude of periods through out history

A few of  the photos I took, the rest are in a folder on my facebook photography page.

All taken with 7D and 70-200mm Lens.

450D/50 Photo 30 Fort Lytton   Leave a comment

While I was filling in some time last Sunday morning , I took the opportunity to call into Fort Lytton  a great place to visit, if you are interested in history of the local area, lost of artefacts, and a great collection of military items on display, defiantely worth a visit.

This time I visited without the crowds that were there last time I was there with the hosting of History Alive , a great opportunity for photographers to capture re enactors in uniforms of different periods.

Anyway my wandering around this time I capture these images.

All of these images taken with the 450D/50 combo.

Of course, this made me think of my visit to History Alive 2011, and so I went searching for some of my images, and this would have to be my favourite photo I captured there last year.

Cheers Dave
