The theme for this Mini is History... My recent trip to historical sites in the Appalachians piqued my interest in such things.
So, please show us your images of subjects that convey a sense of History... it can be any aspect of history that you wish - local, regional, or national; personal or well-known; people, places, events, objects, etc.
If the picture tells the whole story, that's great, but, if you wish to narrate a bit, that's great too!

TIA, cheers, and enjoy!
Eric

This Mini will run for 2 weeks... from today, April 13 to Thursday, April 28 at 9:00pm PDT USA


Usual yada, yada, yada: :D
**************************************************
Mini Challenge Un-Official Rules

OUR UN-OFFICIAL GENERAL RULES
1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter.
The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and then passes on the baton to the new champion.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
5. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.
Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (see here for help)
7. Don't be hesitant, share'em and enter!
Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round your first step is coming up with a new theme, and start a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging start a new thread (again use the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up, it is important to have runners up incase the winner does not show within the 72hr window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72hrs.
7. After the 72hrs and the winner does not show up, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the show.

    Good challenge Eric! As opposed to the last challenge where I had very few photos to choose from, in this challenge I have too many choices. Let's see if I can come up with some entries that rise to the challenge and tell a story.

    Cheers, Sara

    Eric - Your theme is gonna attract a huge number of amazing images, I'm certain - *great* idea. When I saw your "From Then to Now" title, I thought of this pic from about 13 yrs ago that I shot with my 1st digital cam (Olympus C-2100 UZ) that boasted a whopping 2.1 megapixels. :D It's a snap of one of my old maps, on top of which I placed a broken old magnifying glass that I believe was once intended to be carried on a chain as a pocket item. Obviously, I superimposed the (public domain) Middle East satellite imagery using PS. I don't want to enter this, but rather wanted to share it as an example of your theme . . .

    I have a question - I have done a fair number of what I call "then and now" which is two photos showing something as it was some number of years ago and how it is now. I thought when I read the title that this was where you were going.

    An example

    1. Then and Now
    Choices.jpg

    On the left is the Key West lighthouse as it was when I did an oil painting of it in 1967 (digitized slide). When I saw it again in 35 years later, I was quite confused and thought that either I had not painted this lighthouse or that there was another lighthouse which was white. It wasn't until I visited the lighthouse again and found a post card of it when it was painted yellow that I understood that I was not delusional - it was just that the painted the darn thing white at some point. Photo on the right is from 2005. I took both photos.

    Is this close enough to this challenge to be considered as an entry?

    This is a photo of the picture that I painted with an insert of the postcard I found

    1036952-My_first_painting_Key_West_lighthouse-Key_West.jpg

    This is not for the challenge and I hope you will forgive me for posting an extra photo.

    ...

    Although your images together do show historical facts about the lighthouse, from what I read in the instructions given and the examples, I have concluded he is not looking for two images posted together to show then and now what something looks like. But as I said, your lighthouse then and now does show historical value and thus should not necessarily be disqualified. Eric can correct me if I am wrong.

    Eric, nice choice of theme! Although technically I cannot enter, I would like to show a few of my history images just for fun, so please do not consider them in judging.

    1. Jerusalem, Israel. The most fought over piece of land in the world.

    2. Independence Mine, Hatcher's Pass, Alaska. Tthe interesting history of this place can be found at this link. http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/units/indmine.htm

    I have many many photos of things that are historical. It would be hard to pick among them. I have many less pictures to pick from where there are identical views of the same thing many years apart. However, I accept that it isn't exactly what is required by the Challenge. I think it unlikely that I will be picked as the winner of the challenge either way. The question for Eric is - If I enter three of the two photo collages, will that be any kind of a problem for you?

    Yes, your comment is right on-the-mark Joyce... my title was meant to describe the time span of history, and also yes grandmaR, your images are just fine for the challenge!

    Thanks for posting your pics Joyce! I'm always sad that you can't compete... maybe someday!
    And, I agree with Don - I love decay and that place looks like a gold mine! (pun intended :D)

    Thank you for accepting my somewhat odd POV.

    Here is Entry 2


    #2 - Turtle Soup
    then%2B%2526%2Bnow7.jpg

    The photo on the left I took at the Turtle Kraals in 1966 in Key West. My dad is trying to get a photo of the turtles in the pen from which they made turtle soup. It was so difficult to see what turtles they had, that they built a tower next to the pens - with added height it was much easier to see how many turtles they had. In those days the docks were full of shrimp boats.

    The photo on the right was taken in 2011. The pens of the turtle kraals no longer contain turtles and they don't make turtle soup in Key West anymore. The turtle kraal tower blew down in a hurricane. The building next to the pens is a little turtle museum. And the docks are full of yachts and fishing charter boats.

    3. Lover's Reunion
    Choices2.jpg

    This is the Evangeline Oak in St. Martinsburg LA - 1960 in the summer and 2004 in December.

    The tree is named for the heroine of the poem Evangeline, written and published by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1847. The "Now" photo is actually the THIRD Evangeline Oak.

    Putting the first one in here so they are all in the same place


    1. Then and Now
    Choices.jpg

    On the left is the Key West lighthouse as it was when I did an oil painting of it in 1967 (digitized slide). When I saw it again in 35 years later, I was quite confused and thought that either I had not painted this lighthouse or that there was another lighthouse which was white.

Photo on the right is from 2005. I took both photos.


    This is a photo of the picture that I painted with an insert of the postcard I found which started this whole thing

    1036952-My_first_painting_Key_West_lighthouse-Key_West.jpg

    I have used for this mini just photos where I took both of the pictures. There is a digi-thread with some more of them but in some cases they are less interesting because they are just photos of houses where I have lived, and in some of them the THEN photo was taken by my father - in many cases taken before I was using any camera more expensive than a Brownie.

    Whew, I'm finally ready...

    Because I live in and travel mostly in “Old Europe” and have a strong interest in things historical I have thousands and thousands of pictures of historical subjects from various centuries. In order narrow down the choice I decided to limit myself to pictures of my adopted home town, Augsburg.

    Augsburg, founded in 15BC, is it in itself a historical goldmine. Currently there’s a construction site across from my apartment building (ugh!) and everything is on hold while the archaeologists dig up remnants of the Roman garrison that was once there. There is no escaping old stuff in this place!

    Since I live within the walls of the city and not in one of the modern suburbs I decided to limit myself to pictures that were taken within 5 minutes walking distance of my front door. Just to make it trickier, I decided to further limit myself to only one church picture (this is “land o’churches”). What I’m trying to achieve by this choice is the narrative line of history within an everyday context. These photos may not be the absolute “winners” out of all of my pictures of historical things and places but they tell a bit of my story.

    Not for judging but for an overview (more than a 5-minute walk from my front door): This is Maximilianstrasse in Augsburg, one of the best preserved grand streets of original 18<sup>th</sup>-century facades in Germany. That big huge church at the end is St. Ulrich’s Basilica.

    20151219_015_DMC-G5-X2.jpg

    Entries:

    1) St. George’s Church, built in 1501: I took this picture leaning out a window in my apartment. If you’re familiar with the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart you might be interested to know that his father, Leopold, was baptized here. The church bells wake me up at 6:00 every morning…


    20100916_st-georg_sunset-X2.jpg


    2) Hofgarten: This sweet little public garden is a part of the former Bishop’s Palace and was laid out in the 1740s. The little dwarf statues were common in gardens from this period. I pass by this garden nearly every day on the way to work and occasionally stop to photograph the fountain, flowers, foliage and sometimes even the sun-worshipers.


    20110416_266_DMC-G1-X2.jpg


    3) City wall, 13<sup>th</sup> century: on days when I don’t have time for a long bike ride I like to set out for a walk around part of the city wall. This path takes one by small gardens, a playground, a beer garden (!!!) and has views of the city moat. This picture was taken last Sunday on just such a walk – we thought the tree was great! (for you, Eric a B&W :D)

    20160410_004_DMC-G5-X2.jpg


    For more pictures of Augsburg and the surrounding countryside check out this gallery.

    Cheers, Sara

    My contribution.

    I had the opportunity to visit several beautiful historic sites (more than I can show here), but I chose 3 of them.

    However, because I thought to show more than just one photo of each, I used PicMonkey and made collages with several images of each place to show more aspects of these so interesting historic sites:
    (By clicking on each photo you can see the whole gallery)

    1. Tulum Mexico Mayan ruins.

    Tulum is one of the best-preserved coastal Mayan sites and it was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya. It was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico.



    2. Alhambra, in Granada, Spain.

    Alhambra was originally constructed as a small fortress by Romans. In the mid-13th century, the ruins were renovated and rebuilt by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls.



    3. Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

    This is a 18th-century French fortress in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
    It was build around a small fishing village which grew and became a major commercial port and a strongly defended fortress. By the mid-1740s Louisbourg was one of the most extensive (and expensive) European fortifications constructed in North America.
    It was captured by British colonists, it went back to French, captured again by British and finally destroyed. Today it was partially restored to a living history museum and it's a National Historic Site of Canada

    Contest Entry
    Hello, Bonita here and a first time poster in this forum. I very much enjoy taking photos around the area that I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia. As you might can guess there are many structures that are old and rich with history, although so much of the time the history is unknown, (private homes especially). These structures are one of my favorite subjects, so I thought I'd share a few of my images in your contest.

    Here are a few photos from a recent trip to Europe. So much of what we saw reflected "then" but I appreciated being able to experience it "now."

    1. The Old Customs House along the Canal in Strasbourg, France
