The Dry Tortugas Fort Jefferson is one of the most unique National Parks in the world to photograph. Fort Jefferson is the military base in Key West Florida from the 1800s. Fort Jefferson is part of the Dry Tortugas National Park, with its seven islands that combine natural beauty and historic architecture.
The arches at Fort Jefferson are outstanding and can be found at Dry Tortugas, one of the most unique National Parks in the world.
During the civil war 19th century, Fort Jefferson defended the Gulf of Mexico and the United States southern coast. But the military base in Key West was also a prison. Dr. Samuel Mudd was imprisoned at the fort for his plot to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln.
The Fort Jefferson military base was architecturally designed as a six-sided building with an inner courtyard. The walkways featured arches that are in my image. The archways and walls in the American historic military fort were built with bricks that now look weathered and old. But even as old as the fort military walkway is, the condition of the building is quite good. The key aspect of this image is the arch walkway's symmetry, which causes a parallax effect. Tilt your head to the left or right, and you will notice that the pathway seems to move. This is most notable when looking at a large print. I created one print for a client 6 feet tall, and the result was spectacular.
