This is one of the oldest homesteads in the Mohawk Valley, New York. It is an example of a fortified home (walls were 2 ft thick, .6 meter, stone) and trading post, built by Johannes Klock in 1750. It was used in the French and Indian War, and the American revolution. To the immediate right of the house is a small stream, which has a small part diverted to run through the basement so they would always have fresh water. If under attack (which it was several times), windows were shuttered and it became impenetrable. If you look closely, you can see several "loopholes," which were holes rifles could be stuck out to fire - the most obvious one is to the left of the door. (101 days ago)

I know it's often suggest you have a foreground, but I feel in this case it has been overdone.

I agree, this photo is focused on the tree, not the building. I can barely make out the features of the building. This photo all around is not that good. It's way to busy, it's hard to make out any detail, and you don't have an object that is the main focus of the photo.

author says:

Deanna Molnar, i agree with your point of view but i'm basically a cinematographer and i clicked this picture to show the whole scene in a single frame rather than a particular object

This is really cool, but, is this a bridge, or an aquaduct? Can people or cars cross it, or does it just carry water?

author says:

passed over men and mules to carry the salt from the sea to our 'internal, and under contained, and still contains the pipes to get water to the city

I have walked across Pont du Gard,, which is probably one of the more well known aqueducts.

author says:

Very nice. You might crop a bit off the bottom and the right to decenter the window some
