Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Well, Hey, Gang!

I imagine some of you may be a bit familiar with some of the historical aspects of our North American Continent, including history that goes back to the settlement of some of what became our homeland by tribes, peoples that developed over time to become the honourable Native American culture!

What may not be so familiar are stories of one of those tribes, called the Anasazi. this tribe "thrived" for several hundreds of years -- over time their culture was inherited by others such as the Navaho and other tribes!

Over time, the Anasazidisappeared and left "pieces" of their culture, especially ruins of their inhabitations. In fact, the Mesa Verde National Park is the "home" of many of these ruins, which have been "labeled" Cliff Dwellings!

I will say that this history plays in my heart, and as a kid places such as Mesa Verde became "special", and I have found other "relics/signs of the past over the years...

so, I'll just say -- back sometime in the '90s I was visiting family in Colorado, one of the Four Corners states known for this Native American background! And so we roamed, and made it to Mesa Verde. I had an old film camera with me, and here is an old, soft shot of one of the reknowned Cliff Dwellings, and this picture plays a place in my heart!!!

Hey, speaking of "Urban", well this Four Corners area was a busy, populated area, So, in this pic you are truly seeing an Anasazi "Urban Scene"! :)

Well, hey, Thanks --

Reemember, this shot was taken hand-held with an old compact/P&S film camera, -- no tripod, no "good" camera, and very low photo skills, Oh Well, I wanted to get this shot!

Without being a darkroom person, the only processing would have been: I got the print, and then scanned it into a Tiff and brought it into whatever basic photo editing stuff I had. Remember, this was way back in the late '90s, so no "fancy" software, and so I would not expect the image to look "developed", pretty much how things went with those old scanned film photos! On a few, I did manage to try with my old version of Photoshop Elements, but there wasn't much I could do, so, It's just that it is a meaningful photo to me!

As I scrolled onto this picture I had not read above your picture and I was thinking......why does this look so familiar....?

My dad was a big Civil War reenactor from the mid 50s to the late 1960s. He and I were fortunate enough to be involved in the reenactment of the first Manassas on the same day as the original battle 100 yeas later, July 21 1961, on the original battlefield. All of the monuments were set under camouflage by the military. There were several thousand participants....it was a huge deal for a 10 year old (me).

Here's my dad, on the left..

And here I am, the drummer, right center.

Man, I wore that experience like a badge around all my buddies. Still one of my greatest memories.

Looking at what’s left of this place, I suspect that it was an outbuilding of some sort.
Whatever it was, it won’t be long before it’s completely gone.
