My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    Hey Bryan give me some history! Did the Confederates actually make it to Washington State?

  • Only in recent times Frank but the town of Port Gamble is one of our favorite spots for our annual reenactment. The town was built as a timber exporting area in the 1850s and has kept it original look and feel. There were Union forts at Fort Steilacoom, south of Tacoma and Fort Stevens, Oregon during the Civil War but the only conflicts they had were with the Indians in the area.
