OK, I know I have used up my allotment of Steve's disk space for this week. These are some shots at the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon I learned that I had just missed an entire reenactor encampment at the fort earlier that day. They still had some reenactors firing muskets and one of the cannon on Sunday, though, so I did get a few good shots. This first one is with the 18-55 kit lens.

I used the Tamron 180mm and the fort's X shape design to get a good angle for the second set of weapons demonstrations.

One of the watchtowers viewed from the outside. If I recall correctly, this was using the Pentax 50-200mm.

This fountain was in the front yard of one of the historic houses we toured. I really liked the play of light and shadow on it and this was my best effort at capturing that. 18-55mm at 18mm.

And finally, one surfer, using the Tamron 180mm.

Thanks for looking,

Tim

Tim,

I knew the name sounded familiar to me. Just last month I was scanning my dad's old photos and came across some from when he was there. Certainly not trying to butt in, but thought you might be interested in a shot from 1952. (My dad is the handsome gentleman on the left. This was when he was stationed there while in the Army.)

I like your shots, by the way. History is always interesting to me.

I was there in the late 1950's and enjoyed it immensely! Great set of photos!

Great set of pics. No 2 is so well timed, with the smoke etc. Fantastic.

These re-enactments are great fun. Wish I had discovered them years ago.
