photoblog image Fort Point

Fort Point

Fort Point is at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

For you film buffs this is where a scene in Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock was filmed.

It is where I go to photograph surfers. See my February-March 2008 archive.

Awhile back I was rewarded with an American Civil War re-enactment at Fort Point. Hundreds dressed in Civil War era costumes. I did not have my flash so I had to crank up the ISO. I had a hard time getting out of there. Once these guys start talking they don't want to stop. They are REALLY into it.

Frank van Hienen (handle = cheapsuit in SC) has just completed a series on an enactment in Zwolle, Netherlands that dates back to the napoleonic wars. What interests me a lot is how these people are into what they do, probably spend a lot on stuff like uniforms as well. I like reading up on history and even sometimes to visit a museum - but this is taking time. Also surprising that nice young men like this one gets involved - sort of expected him on a surfboard or something like that smile You did luck out here.
John Eagle: I have seen his photos of Zwolle as well. I thought it funny that we are posting similar themes at the same time. Some of these guys might just be on surf boards or motorcycles but some how find the time to do this as well. But It's the older folks that blow me away. Talk about walking history books. Great opportunity for photography though.
