Hahaha, thumb on foresight, ciggy smoke threatening his sight and one eye closed, no sniper then Grin
We encountered a "patrol" of these guys a few years back at an event. Very eerie seeing them going by, most of the onlookers went terribly quiet and the urge to shout abuse was near overwhelming - why anyone would reenact as a member of the SS is beyond me - cracking capture by the way.

Excellent mono capture Tony. The image captures just about the right air of menace--although we all know it was just 'hobby' acting. Good use of the vignette to concentrate attention.Grin

And you're never to point a gun at someone unless you intend to use it. But you shot first. Good one, really like it.......Sandy

Thanks Pinnace, Richard, Ron & Sandy Wink

It is a bit strange that grown men would wish to spend the whole weekend being dressed up as a German SS Officer but sometimes they make interesting, out of the ordinary subjects.

All the best, Tony

Weapons have no national identity Wink Wouldn't matter, he could have been using a captured rifle. He don arf look menacing though.

What an odd question for a photo website! Honest answer is I don't know, neither do I know if the buttons on his jacket are real brass or his blackened face is made with soot or greasepaint. I just take the pictures Wink
