In days of old when knights were bold


In April, I attended my very first historical reenactment festival. 'Iron Fest' was held in Lithgow a small town west of Sydney. The enthusiasm of the participants was infectious.

Goodness! Someone has spent quite some time polishing that helmet. Wonderful reflection, including you, I think?

Super, very creative as always.

Julie, did you say you'd be somewhere in France soon? Do let me know (but I'll be away until the end of the first week of October).

Francisca said...

Julie, this is just cool - great reflection shot. And I bet the festival was a hoot. (I thought you were going to Paris?)

EG Wow said...

This is a WOW reflection, Julie! You're making me wish I had been at the re=enactment...but I probably would have totally missed this shot!

Julie said...

C & F - I will be in France from 18 September until 7 October. I will leave a message on your blog, too.

What a great shot. If I had gone to Ironfest I am sure I would not have spotted this, there is just something about your ability to see these types of things.

Thanks for your comment :-)
Wonderful, specially I love the last picture.
Also I remember when I as a child running through the stubble, crawled up on the stack og straw and jumped down.
