Yes, I know I've been remiss in keeping this blog active. Yes, I know it's been over six months since my last blog post. But I am here today with some new images to share.
2012 is the Bicentennial year of the War of 1812. And up here in Canada, there have been many events celebrating the occasion. It seems both sides won the war. At least that is what the history books of the respective countries state. A recent columnist in a local newspaper said the only loser in the War of 1812 were the North American Indian.
Politics and editorial comments aside, I had the opportunity to watch and photograph a number of tail ships and several hundred re-enactors re-enact the invasion of Bath, Ontario by the Americans and their later retreat.
Thought it would be appropriate (and fun) to play with a few of the photos by converting to B&W, adding a sepia tone and textures in an attempt to give them a vintage look. Hoping you will find my attempts pleasing.
