Find youself alone on a batlefield in front of flintguns and canons. That is what happened to this guy. In fact he was the supervisor from the artillery. His job was giving the comands for loading and to fire. also he was an expert on the weapons and when something was wrong he was the one who came in. Okay they were shooting blanks, but still then I would not go stand in front of the guns.
These guys and ladies, had good fun with their guns, only standing in constant smoke is a bit of a drawback.
Love the grain in this one, must say taking pics in smoke or mist is not so straightforward.
