Lend Me Your Eyes I Can Change What You See

This is the oh-so-famous moat behind me. I might have climbed over a fence to get so close to the water, but there are many more impressive things I would do for the sake of a photograph. This is the outside view of the moat; behind me in the second photograph you can see the taller stone wall that is part of the moat's fortifications (that's the wall with the sally ports). Inside of that is where my house is situated. You can walk along the top of the moat wall and get a more aerial view of things (which you can see in this post). So, with this post you've had nearly a 360 view of the moat (the moat from inside & above, from outside and beside, and even a few pictures in part of the moat wall).

  4. I like how you see the limit/safety line, and you straddle it, and then eventually go over it, just to dangle your legs above the water. It just goes to tell your readers how adventurous and how connected you are to the water--there is no limit to your connection to natural things. I really adore that about you.

    Oh yeah, nice outfit. (^_~)" Chou kawaii yo.

  11. Hi Rebecca, Fantastic Outfit!! Thank you for the tour of the moat! Just curious is the moat part of a civil war, do you know when it was built? I am such a major history buff.

  13. haha you're so badass. I would definitely fall in after ten minutes of posing around the moat =) You always have such lovely backgrounds in your pictures. That dress is really fun and interesting. It kind of reminds me of a court jester. Which I love!

  14. @Anonymous, the moat pre-dates the civil war. The base itself was first fortified in 1609! But of course it has undergone many changes since then. The moat began construction in 1819 (I believe).
    Confederate President Jefferson Davis was actually imprisoned here during the war...

  19. Your title is part of my most favorite lyric in the history of ever! I'm not sure if it was your goal, but the color balance in your photos are really pretty; it's like a gentle pink tint. Love it.

  22. @Asia, Yeah, I just wear colors I like when the mood strikes me. I also don't believe in seasonal clothes/palette...I'll wear brights & pastels and what-have-you, but it will be when it fits my mood and not b/c it's spring.
