Every picture tells a story: Am I a time traveler who captured the action first hand during the Civil War? No. But this is a throwback photo I took in 2014. It’s taken at the George Ranch Historical Park during their Texian Market Days Festival. If you want to capture some truly unique old-timey pictures then this is the event to go to. It happens every October and here you’ll see battle reenactments, people in costume, historic home tours, cowboys, and all kinds of good stuff for the camera. The best part about this park… alligators! Yes, there are gators here so be careful and make sure you bring that telephoto lens or you’ll be missing out.
