This young civil war reenactor is taking a break and trying to capture some shade. The prisoners were held in an open field to suffer all the Georgia elements. Anyone that has ever been to Middle Georgia can tell you that we have the craziest weather. Our winters can be very wet and cold and our summers have temps in the 100s. The humitiy is horrible. There is rarely a spring or fall. The prisoners faced the worst conditions and I have often wondered how the health of the ones that did make it out alive fared. I would imagine it had serious effects.
In a perfect world, I would have moved in on this shot and used a little flash for fill to rid the hotspots but there was a do not cross line and it was over the 10 foot mark for flash. Oh well. Catch them as you can.
