CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – BLACK AND WHITE OR SEPIA TONES

This weekend, Jeff and I took a road trip and ended up in Valley Forge, PA. It had snowed a little the night before (as you may already know) and the countryside was just magnificent. It was a very, VERY cold day. Cold, with a blustery wind that chilled me to the bone each time I hopped out of the car to point and click. I imagine it was a lot like that when Washington’s army hunkered down within the four walls of this cabin, and others like it during the winter of 1777-1778. I don’t think you have to be a history buff to appreciate the courage this must have taken.

Think what it must have been like for Washington’s men, trying to sleep in these cold, hard bunks. How grateful are you tonight?

  1. We do have it easy now. I really like your sepia photos and I’m fascinated by a structure that’s ten years older than white Australia.

  2. The triumphs and setbacks experienced by all of those that have gone before us is astounding.

    The danger of holding up in that cabin is profound. Just one direct hit from a single canon, if the enemy contingent advancing on that position was so equiped, would have ended everything for everyone inside.

    You can take pity for the cold George and his soldiers endured just as you can imagine how the men must have given thanks for waking up the next day in such uncertain times.

Feel free to express your (kind) thoughts.
