The Horse Whisperer


Alas, I haven't found anything worth photographing today, although the sun has shined for a while. I even managed to cut the rather soggy hedge without electrocuting myself!

So here's a rather colourful portrait of a member of the Sealed Knot, who were demonstrating their battle skills at Wollaton Park last Sunday.

He looks very smart in his yellow and black jacket, with little red and yellow hat. I am amazed at how much effort that these groups put into creating their uniforms, as I doubt that they are originals. So they must do a great deal of research into the material used, colours etc. Maybe they have looked at and had access to similar garments in museums.

However they got the information; well done to creating such an authentic looking costume.
