ABC Wednesday: H is for History

I thought the shot below outside of the NC Museum of History worked well for H week.

The shot above was of wedding transportation that I spotted and the shot below was taken another time outside of the NC Museum of History. The handsome statues are historical figures.

Lovely shots. I really thought that the horse & cart were for real !

Judy said...

Wow, I thought the horse and cart were real too.

The museum is so open and inviting -- no dusty old remnants like so many historical museums I've seen. I'd want to visit if I were there.

We as a nation have such little respect for learning from history; it frustrates me...

I haven't visited a single museum last year and I promised to visit at least one this year.

did you say the horse wasn't real? I thought you were talking about the figures in the 2nd image.
I love history, but really it is no longer taught in many grades. Social Studies which neither lends toward history or geography so both those subjects lack substance in Soc. Studies. sad state of affairs for education...:(

Museums about History are always interesting. The artefacts and also the ordinary household articles can show us how people used to live. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I would love to take some super close-ups of the statue faces.
How beautiful.
Perfect choice for the letter H.

Lots going on outside the museum!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. The first shot of the mule and carriage were real. They had a wedding party in traditional robes of their native country and they just happened to be outside of the museum. The second shot is of the statues.

Great choice for H, - sad to see History so neglected, - it has many lessons to teach us.

Norma Ruttan said...

magiceye said...

Both are classic shots!

Indrani said...

I too mistook the horse carriage for real one from recent days.

Jidhu Jose said...

great ..like the first pic

Melanie said...

The juxtaposition of the horse and cart against the modern face of the building is particularly effective. Fabulous job!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

The monochrome image does go well with the theme of history.

Joy said...

How fortunate you were to happen on the wedding party. The statues are a great way to intrigue, I love museums, large or small.

Beverley Baird said...

Great ideas for H! Love the photo of the carriage!

LONDONLULU said...

Oh very handsome figure and I love the horse and cart (especially in monochrome)!
