11.1. Why It's Worth a Photograph

Located behind the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center is the replica Indian Village of Ahwahnee. In this village, you see a ceremonial roundhouse, houses, umuchas (conical homes made of bark), and food storage areas. The replica buildings transport you back in time and give you an insight to the time before European settlers discovered Yosemite Valley. If you frame your images carefully, you can eliminate modern structures and capture a glimpse into Yosemite's past.
