Photographer's Note

Taken once again at the English Heritage festival at Kelmarsh in Northamptonshire, It shows a “Royalist foot soldier” from the English Civil War (1642 and 1651.).

I asked this guy if I could take a shot of him .. he stopped and looked straight into the lens and never uttered a single word. I was drawn to his eyes that seemed to look straight through me and his stare was reminiscent of the “Clint Eastwood” look in many of his spaghetti westerns. After the shutter went off he turned and walked away, sometimes I wonder if these re-enactors once dressed up take on the persona of the people they are portraying.
