Fort McKavett...not so long ago

I like the idea of making a photograph that looks like it was made half a century ago.
In this instance, the photo was made with a homemade matchbox pinhole camera using 35mm film.

This is a view of the Parade Grounds at Fort McKavett.  The exposure was about 2 seconds long...more or less because I wasn't counting. 

It's gritty and sort of gives you the feeling of what a frontier fort was like back when it was used to protect the settlers from Indian raids.
