Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon, Toronto, Canada

One of your best portraits of a knight, which I have been reading a lot about lately.
They led such privileged lives and it was an art to be a knight, love reading about
all the respect they garnered. Such a superb series, I wish so much I could be there
to talk to these people who relive their lives and pastimes, superb capture, I love !~

Oh, lovely shot...looks as if you caught a glimpse of a hidden moment when the mask came off. He looks like he might be a bit hot and stressed.....ah, the truth behind the armor. :-)

Un preu chevalier un peu mal à l'aise dans son armure très jolie au demeurant. Bonne fin de week end au soleil. Bises.

@Vert Pomme: En fait il avait des soucis avec ses gants (je peux comprendre quand on voit de quoi il s'agit ;). Merci pour ton commentaire Lionel, je te souhaite une excellente soirée. Bisous :)

Kat from Lorraine, France

Beau portrait, ... plus encombrante qu'un tee-shirt cette armure :)
