p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mr. Franklin


Ran into this gentleman and his wife who attend reenactments as Mr. & Mrs. Ben Franklin; first meeting 3 or 4 years ago. Mrs. Franklin remembered the occasion.

A thorough student of Franklin, and very interesting gentleman to speak with, both in and out his role as Franklin. Their 'tent' serves as the accommodation during events.

Thanks for looking,

Bob

If my history studies were accurate, Ben Franklin was - among many things - a prime mover behind the French Revolution and instrumental in setting up the Canadian postal service. How's my memory?

Thanks Rick, Ben, and Kent

I don't know about the French Revolution he did form the US postal service among many other various things.

I very much like this set, Bob. Delicate processing too.

I am not sure about the cropping on 2, 3 and 5 - 2 and 3 seeming like they could most benefit from some shifting as you might have something of a floating head look. 5 might could just use a bit of breathing room on the bottom.

Thank you Scott, Dan and Jeff,

I am certain I do not appreciate the research and just plain work done by individuals such as Mr. Franklin. Everything in their area was period, and they slept in the tent. Fascinating.

Jeff - yes re crops, wanted the portrait looks but leery of similarities with others in set. Processing in 1-4 is OOC Fuji ACROS film preset with minor tweaks. - level, crop etc.
