period people

I spent Labor Day weekend in Williamsburg, Virginia… mostly riding rollercoasters at Busch Gardens but we also spent a bit of time at Colonial Williamsburg. Colonial Williamsburg is an area where many of the buildings have been reconstructed/restored to the way the were before the American Revolution, and new buildings constructed using similar tools, materials, etc as then– to the extreme that they make the nails for new buildings by hand at the blacksmith! The workers all dress in period clothes, perform work according to period traditions and they have reenactments of historical events throughout the day. Last time I visited, I focused mainly on the details of the buildings, animals and things… but despite knowing that the people know their being photographed, I was still a bit shy of shooting them. I have a history nerd friend who was a bit disappointed with my lack of people photos in the last trip, so this time I made a strong effort to get the people…
