GarGar looked at the enemy’s position with his field glasses. Stifling a sigh, he could see their cannons arranged on a distant ridge with the infantry and calvary lined up in orderly fashion. To charge into their ranks would cost many lives, especially on his side. The only recourse was to wait. Wait and see.

Soon the sun would be in the enemy’s eyes. That would be the best time to strike. Of course, he could also wait until the wee hours of the morning, in the dark of night to attack, but that was an old strategy that the Imperial generals had incorporated into their planning. Perhaps he could create a diversion, send a few regiments at one side of their ranks and then throw the full force of his army at the very center of their position. The one thing he knew he must do was neutralize those cannons.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
