German Soldier

By mjstead
Taken at Margam Park (2nd May),where the "Fortress Wales"event took place,a mock battle between the British & German army was totaly awesome...the noise from the heavy machine guns used was at least you can say was............loud!!
This Character passed my way after the battle,i decided to make him black & White to give him a bit of presence and a little more gritty...allthough i don`t think he needed it

Looks like he just stepped out of WW2. Great capture. Cheers.

Witnessed a "patrol" of these guys at one of the fortress events. Very, very eerie seeing them moving along in a terribly realistic manner. A lot of people visibly seemed to react the way I felt - if I'd had a grenade I'd have been tempted to toss it their way.......Guess that's kudos to their reenactment, but even so, German soldiers on Welsh land! Great capture.
