Those Purple Things

Or beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

The local library has been having a month long Civil War series of displays and events. This past weekend there was a Civil War encampment and battle re-enactment at the nearby park.

I knew Little Sprout wouldn't appreciate the history behind the event, but I thought she might like to see the tents, soldiers and ladies in costume, cannons, horses, campfires, etc. We decided to go early and avoid the actual battle scheduled for the afternoon.

She brought her camera along and we first visited the Confederate camp. Usually Darling Hubby (UDH) and I were pointing out all the photo opportunities. She took photos of a few things but seemed frustrated by our suggestions.

"I wanna take a picture of the purple things!"

"What purple things?" I asked, looking around the camp.

"Over there, across the field."

UDH & I laughed.

We trudged off towards the Union camp. About halfway there, the perfect photo was captured.
