A little bit of history

Today, I had two assignments. Both of them pretty quick, but also fun.

My first assignment had me out to the James A. Garfield National Historic Site. I had been there before for an immigration ceremony, but this was a little different. I was taking a portrait of an employee who had recently given a talk about the importance of the front porch.

Now, I am not a history buff really. I enjoy it a little bit and I have gone on some tours of historic sites with my parents when I was little, but that is as far as my knowledge about history goes.

So, after the photo shoot was done, I had a little bit of time to kill, so I asked the employee if he wouldn’t mind giving me a short tour of the house. I had never been in it before, so I figured why not?

It was interesting for me to look at, but at the same time not the most exciting historic site I have seen. My biggest question about all of these historic sites is I want to know exactly how much is real and how much has been restored. I think that the non-restored sites are a lot cooler than the ones that were restored. They just seem more like the real thing.

My other assignment was at the Lake Metroparks Penitentiary Glen Reservation where I took some shots of hummingbirds. The only eventful thing there was I got locked outside and had to call inside to have them let me in. Oh well, thank goodness for cell phones!
