This was taken at Ugbrooke House Devon UK. Home of Lord and Lady Clifford.
This is the ‘Money Maker’ in the Sealed Knot, Civil War Society.
I just loved this gentleman’s face which was so full of character and he was pleased for me to photograph him.
I think he looked like a cross between Charles Dickens ‘Fagin’ and ‘Father Christmas’.
The Sealed Knot re- enact day to day life during the English Civil War. They also fight battles.
Edited from RAW in Dynamic Photo HDR 1shot x 3 finished off in Picasa3.
Thank you for looking.
