My extensive holiday travel has taken me to many historical places. History has always fascinated me so I like to visit out of the way places that have some connection with history.
The historical topics that I have come interest in range from the Roman era up to the Second World War. In the USA I have traveled From Alaska to Florida and visited anything interesting wherever I have come across. In Alaska I've been to Mount Mckinley, Valdez (where I shot this picture of a whale's tail), Homer, Delta Junction plus numerous other places in Alaska.
In Europe I have spent time in Wales, England, France, Belgium and Germany. In Europe, in my four trips there, I have shot around 200 rolls of film of pretty much every place I went through.
In the "lower 48" I've been to Gettysburg, Bull Run and other civil war battlefields. Western gold mining towns, National Parks (Yosemite, Yellowstone) and lots of places in-between.
Locally in the Portland area you can also see re-creations of Civil War Life at McGuyver Park.
There is history all around - - you only have to take the time to look to see it. From the smallest manhole cover to the largest building in the world - - all are historical in some manner. The hard part is dealing with historical items is after taking the photo - - finding it's context in the larger historical events.
