Berkley Castle, an American Civil War re-enacting event organised by the 4th Texas regiment and my first event for many years. A wonderful re-introduction for me as it was the first time my new family attended an event also.
Everyone had an excellent weekend and a lot of fun at this relaxed, friendly and beautiful location.
This event (2005) at Stanford Hall marked the American Civil War Societys 30th anniversary. A not to be missed event which happily I had the chance to attend. Stanford has always been a favourite of mine and this one lived up to all expectations albeit a very hot weekend.
An annual Westeners event featuring all aspects of the Westerners hobby. Civil War re-enactors were welcomed and again, an enjoyable, relaxed weekend was the order of the day.
Stanford Hall 2006 Event. Doesn't seem the other one was a year ago. Once again very hot but enjoyable.
Spent ages trying to find a good art filter/tut, no luck. Finally figured a way to do it meself.
A few pics I altered in PSP9. All are basically the same but I will try different approaches when I have time.
