This Militia comes riding into town, proudly displaying their United States Flag. More than likely weary after wearing hot wool uniforms during a very hot day, tthey probably need a good long and cold dose of water. This picture was taken during the reenactment of California Gold Rush Days, located in Old Town Sacramento, California with a Canon XTI and a 300 mm zoom lens.

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock
