    Lordy, I haven't posted in here in FOREVER. I met up with a few fellow photogs, and we kinda split up and wandered around the city. I've been there a hundred times, but I can always find SOMETHING to shoot that's not the usual. I was feeling the symmetry and architecture a lot that day :dunno:

    On a different topic, is there a recreated "village" or something in St. Aug that depicts life in the 1700's?? (not the fort that you've pictured)

    I heard something along the lines that there may be a recreated village. I need to shoot some video of one if there is.

    IIRC, yes. I don't know all of the details, but I think you're right. Can't remember what it's called though, sorry.

    -edit- I think this is what you're talking about: http://www.old-staug-village.com/

    Maybe that was it. It's a bit too late in history for what I need. I meant to say mid 1500's not 1700's. We're trying to depict what life was like when Pedro Menedez de Avilez arrived and built a fort in St. Aug. He established the city of Santa Elena then sent Captain Juan Pardo off to find a route to Zacaatecas in Mexico.
