Ils portent ces armures combien de temps ? Je te souhaite une agréable journée

6 Jun 2011 1:53pm

@jpla: Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire JP, en fait la reconstitution de la bataille dure une heure ou deux mais pendant tout l'évenement (deux jours en 2010, cette année ce sera trois jours) on croise des chevaliers en armure. Je te souhaite une excellente soirée :)

Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon,, Canada

I love this so much and wish we had a history over here of fighting in knights armour.
Would love to do some shots of this kind of armour in other settings too, and sometimes
not even on people but as a still life composition of some of the armour mail.

@Phil David Morris 2011: If you ever have the chance to come over to Belgium in August, don't miss it ! Still lifes are also possible as there are armors and weapons all over the place (I think, not sure at all but if I have the chance I'll check that out next August, they even sell them). Thank you so much for your comment Phil, highly appreciated ! have a lovely day :)
