Color Guard

I published the full color version of this picture earlier this week in Changing of The Guard. I thought the guard got lost in the image so I did a little bit of editing to make him stand out.

Changing of The Guard

I am not a big fan of the military and soliders. I appreciate the sacrifices they make but I am not very knowledgable or interested in military things. That said I love the pomp and circumstance of the changing of the guard. I have seen it at the Tomb of The Unknown Solider and more recently at Prague Castle.

Prague Castle is the current seat of government for the Czech Republic and has been the seat of emperors and kings dating back to 9th century. The ceremony is therefore guarded by active soliders in addition to the ceremonial guard.

Fort Pitt

The Fort Pitt Museum is at the site of the old Fort Pitt Blockhouse at the confluence of the Ohio River. The museum is interesting and the docents dress in clothing from the era. Only the blockhouse remains but the size of the original fort was is quite large and outlined by a concrete walking path.

Some of the original artillery is still functional. Periodically they fire the big canon and the presentation is fun and LOUD!
