We sometimes forget that those who lived through the wars had to carry to their gas masks everywhere...

Colour today😁

What a horror that must have been Leo. Great photographic find though.

Both versions work for me, Leo.
A mask like that would be anti everything.
It probably even killed its owner. Wink

A wonderful find Leo. I have one of those, found it lying on the seabed. Must have been horrible, having to carry it around and
never knowing if you'd have to use it.

Looks pretty ancient. I wonder if an army issue or one for paint spraying? I think in this case, the colour is my choice, Leo.

Maybe someone was doing a movie scene in your woods and it got dropped and forgotten. Well captured Leo. I think the colour version this time.

The lead for me, Leo.
I guess that if you die because it is letting in what it is designed to keep out, then it's time to change it...

Mono for me, Leo.
I can remember my grandmother had one of these in a cupboard and I've no idea what happened to it.

Both good but colour has the edge on detail. Definitely seen some action and if only it could speak, then again the story would be painful Leo.

Your woodlands continue to throw up conundrums!

Very creepy this one Leo, I hope it's one that's just been discarded and not used in some live military exercise.

I like the mono - fascinating find Leo !!

Lovely tones and textures in both mono and colour, but think it stands out better in colour 👍 I think you definitely need to change your mask, Leo!! 😁
