Monochrome Monday

Meet Roy, he volunteers as a Civil War interpreter at Fort Independence on Castle Island in Boston. He says he came to his love of theater because of his English teacher, Miss Rose. And that led him to doing what he does now, combining his interest in theater with his interest in history and the American Civil War.

He certainly looks the part. Great portrait - one foe his wall.

Great one!

An excellent shot, he looks like he has posed before. I'm a bit of a Civil War buff although I'm a Brit. I have a link on my blog to my CW site on the 1863 Battle of Chickamauga.

Bless his English teacher. Bless teachers in general. This is a shot that invites the viewer in. Splendid, Clueless. Roy looks totally authentic in his role. I bet he'd be a terrific guide.

This is a fantastic image of Roy, the Civil War interpreter, who also impersonates Edgar Allen Poe, thanks to Miss Rose. He looks very authentic, with the exception of his watch, name tag, and glasses. You've added to the authentication with your choice of black and white. Excellent work!
