Here are some shots I took this weekend while rambling through the Vicksburg National Military Park and along some railroad tracks that run along Washington Street.
I have to tell you this: I have taken some pretty photos in my time, but nothing can compare to the beauty God created in one little bluebird. I love the simplicity of these shots and the vividness of the feathers of the bird as he sat upon the wheel of a cannon in the park. I will take a bunch more photos in my time on this earth, but I will never come across something that is more beautiful than this little fellow. What a sight!
I love the photos of the banged-up buckets holding railroad spikes that I stumbled across. And the Illinois Memorial was beautiful in the morning light. The golden glow of the eagle atop the memorial really made the bottom photo, too.
