the quality of the image is fabulous and worthy of all the accolades it should receive.....the subject leaves me a little uncomfortable......if this was the intention then it has worked.
A beautiful image, great detail and perfect in sepia. I remember quite a few years ago now, the Gurkas came to Australia and everyone was talking about it. Apparently they were renowned to be the best fighting soldiers in the world

Thank you all for the comments. A little background information about the image. A few years ago at a dinner party with friends the subject came up about elite fighting forces. One of my friends was stationed in Afghanistan in command of a regiment of Ghurkas. I mentioned to him that i held The Ghurkas in high esteem. On his return to duty he mentioned this to his regiment. Six months later after there return from leave they presented this Ghurka knife to him and asked him to give it to me. Kagi who lives with us since his mother passed away was fascinated by the Ghurka history and while testing out my studio lights asked if he could us the knife as a prop. He is the gentlest soul and was happy with the end result.. Nothing sinister hence the title Kagi the Ghurka. Regards all
