Nice!! I like the black and white photos. I think maybe because they give the feel of historic and hallowed rather than beautiful and park like. I love the Vicksburg battlefield, but sometimes I am concerned it is thought of more as a park - a place to walk, jog, and ride, rather than a place that arguably changed the course of American history.
Sorry - I'll climb down off my soapbox. These are wonderful pictures that have me yearning for a trip back down there. Thank you for sharing. You have a good eye and quite a talent.
Thank you Tim! I fully understand what you mean concerning the local attitude towards the battlefield. You really have to watch out for joggers and dog walkers.....I could've bagged several had I not been alert. I definitely got the impression that they were not concerned with the historic nature of the ground their poodles were pooping on.
