This image was captured at a US Civil War reenactment last spring in Port Gamble, WA. From the reactions of the horse and rider I don’t believe that this fall was part of the show—but it did add realism. Both got up after the tumble shook themselves off and continued the show no worse for the experience.

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.
