Fortress of Louisbourg 3

I really liked the lighting on the green chair shown in the first photo. While it doesn't look as comfortable as a modern-day lazy boy, it does look more comfortable than the wooden chair in the photos I shared yesterday.

I photographed a group of soldiers who were waiting for the start of a ceremony and another soldier posed for me in front of a stone wall. You can see that the uniforms are authentic looking and visiting the Fortress of Louisbourg is like stepping into the past.

The fourth image today is a view of the ornate chapel. I have more images of this chapel and will share them in the future. However, if you are interested, I have nine images of the chapel on line at:

The last photo shows a lone soldier standing on guard in the large square outside the main building in the Fortress.

I'm enjoying your Louisbourg posts. Its my second home! I looked at the gallery on your website as well and was very pleased to see a photo of my dad, who we lost last year, he loved the Fortress as well and it was his passion to the day he left us. Beautiful work, thanks for sharing it in your blog.
