I sat on the rooftop and screamed at the sky I sat on the edge until I knew deep inside, Like the sky, I will always be empty The horizon, my love, forever just out of reach 11318 💐 • • • • @parkwaydriveofficial #lyrics #heavymetal #theblueandthegrey #sunsettones #palosverdes #cottoncandysky #burner #cloudscape #fallsunset #november #aphotoaday #TeamPixel #amateurphotographer #abc7eyewitness #nbcla #pinkcloudday #pacificdaydream #whereskymeetstheocean #calisunset #westcoastsunsets at Palos Verdes Cliffs

Confederate trenches at Cold Harbor. Authentic B&W photo! US Park services one of the wonders of the modern age. Give generously. The government doesn’t. 18,000 casualties June 1864. Amazing 154 years of preservation! #usparksandmonuments #coldharbor #theblueandthegrey

“ I stood at the shore and spoke to the ocean. I stood in the water and let my guts spill...I said, “You and me, we're not so different, I see my reflection in all that you do”. We both keep our secrets....” #parkwaydrive #atlas #theblueandthegrey

Unfortunately I sat on the wrong side of the field and didn't get many shots of the Union soldiers. They stayed safely on the hill. Still, it was great to be able watch the reenactment and talk with the actors after. They were all very passionate about the details: where each regiment was placed, who abandoned who, what the soldiers ate, where they slept, how they got paid. There were zero divisive flags for sale and no rallies or political statements. Abraham Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address, and Generals Grant and Lee acted out the surrender at Appomatix. Overall, I'd say the reenactment was well done and very educational. I only wish their had been more diversity among the actors, but I was told that the few people of color that sometimes come out were busy this weekend, which is a loss for those of us who could have learned from their stories as well. #theblueandthegrey #civilwarreenactment #Gettysburg #timewithdad at Moorpark, California

Confederate Captain Henry Wirz was hanged from the gallows outside the Capitol in Washington, D.C. in November 1865. He was one of two men tried by a court and executed for war crimes following the Civil War. Wirz was in charge of Andersonville prison camp, where more than 13,000 men died under horrific circumstances. However, a southern effort led by the Daughters of the Confederacy helped place a monument in Andersonville, Ga. in 1909 to redeem Wirz in the eyes of southern sympathizers. The controversial monument remains standing today, a short walk from thousands of tombstones honoring the Andersonville prisoners who died. It's now a national monument to all prisoners of war.

"Stand Guard" A Civil War Reenactor stood in the doorway of our rail-car on the way to the Hanover Junction Station. What I found amusing is that this gentleman was standing like this for 10-15 minutes, in a rail-car full of photographers, WITH THEIR GEAR OUT, and nobody noticed him for quite some time. I really don't take many portraits like this with dramatic lighting, and am happy with the way this turned out. This shot was hand-held on a moving train. #traincar #trainride #1860s #1863 #steamintohistory #train #periodcostume #civilwar #soldier #reenacting #reenactor #rifle #yorkcountypa #pennsylvania #360rule #newfreedompa #northerncentralrailway #trainspotting #steamengine #PA #yorkpa #newfreedom #steam #steamlocomotive #locomotive #railway #railroad #railfan #theblueandthegrey #unionarmy at Steam into History Inc.

Caro cielo, Caro cielo non piangere per me, sii la speranza che non potrei mai raggiungere Mare freddo, per favore non lasciarmi affondare Avvolgi le braccia intorno a me e portarmi a casa Io stavo sulla riva e parlavo all'oceano Sono rimasto nell'acqua e mi lascio cadere le interiora Ho detto "Tu e me, non siamo così diversi, vedo il mio riflesso in tutto ciò che fai" Entrambi manteniamo i nostri segreti Siamo entrambi così blu... Il mio cuore è pieno di oscurità So che anche il tuo lo è Mi sono seduto sul tetto e ho gridato al cielo Mi sono seduto sul bordo finché non ho conosciuto dentro la profondità Come il cielo, sarò sempre vuoto L'orizzonte, il mio amore, per sempre appena fuori portata La distanza era nata quando il mare e il cielo si separarono La solitudine è nata il giorno in cui ti ho lasciato andare Così ora mi trovo in riva e parlo all'oceano. #parkwaydrive #theblueandthegrey #lyrics #ortona at Ortona
