Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre
As usual I wont get into details of explaining the history since so many people have done it better than I can ever imagine plus I got to read about it myself from other sources.
So here is the history and more details about this historic location:
I attended my Photography school on another cold winter Saturday morning and as an assignment we had to go out for a shoot with a purpose of achieving a timeless shot. a shot that when you look at you cant get the sense of when the image was taken regardless of the technical aspect of new equipment and technology.
The instructor has appointed two locations for us student in DC area to go and shoot with a mild option of choosing our own destination and of course being me I had to go with what I wanted to choose. I love the freedom of “choice”
Story short after getting a permission from the instructor I had another classmate interested to go with me on this shoot, now all we needed was a location for the shoot after a quick Google search the night before I had two options in mind 1. Manassas National Battlefield Park 2. Champ’s Mill.
While in class trying to get out and get ready for shoot, being the only person who decided to go on his own google search came out to be less accurate than expected and I emailed myself the address of Brentsville Courthouse.
With all the excitement of finding ourselves in a timeless battlefield after driving for about an hour soon we came across the reality of a simple mistake. There was no battlefield, neither any canons.
We made the best of it shoot as many as we could explore all the buildings which were not more than 5 and yet another disappointment, all were closed.
here are few more of my favorite shots of the day, hope you enjoy this post and images.
Peace and Love
