*"There was Harrison, who made his pile when Pardon won the cup,
The old man with his hair as white as snow;
But few could ride beside him when his blood was fairly up -
He would go wherever horse and man could go."

(from “The Man From Snowy River” by A.B. (Banjo) Paterson*

One of Australia’s senior citizens, with the weatherbeaten features of an old Australian Mountain bushman and wet weather gear to match. He reminded me of these lines from one of Australia’s best known poems.

Found him enjoying a stubby of beer while watching the entertainment at the fair. He was happy to chat about the 13th century play he attended the previous evening and have me take his photograph.

Taken with Pentax k-r on 24 March 2012 at the Medieval Fair, St David’s Cathedral Close, Hobart, Tasmania.
