Medieval Metallica by Larry Lingard-Davis

This suit of armour was inside the Chateau du Clos Luce’ as part of the ambiance.
The home of Leonardo Da Vinci for the last years of his life this was an amazing chateau to visit.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.
