I don't know why but I've always found knight's armor to be spooky. It just looks creepy. Hmm.

Isn't Quebec City just fabulous? Great pic.

Very cool! I've never been to Quebec City, but I'd love to go! My photo is about motherhood this week.

A Horse! A Horse! His kingdom for a Horse...there's just something about a man dressed in a tin can...

It may be "wordless" but without those puns it just wouldn't be the same. Very very clever.

Armour plate is always necessary when I cook!

Quebec City is a wonderful place. I'm glad you got to see Canada. I'm always hoping to see your photos from my haunts. Great shot, this one.

Very good looking knight. They make a good decor piece too.

Like what Kathryn has mentioned. I always have got the thinking that someone is inside those armor awaiting chance to pounce!! :P

MamaGeek said...

I can't decide which I like better. The post title or the photography!

Both are PERFECT.

Charles Gramlich said...

That is cool! Love the sheen to it.

My daughter is going to Quebec for a class trip in a couple of weeks. I've never been to Quebec unless you count the airport on a layover on my way to Vancouver. LOL

Great suit of armour - you have really managed to keep the details of the metal while showing the idiosyncrasy of its location!

Lavinia Ladyslipper said...

You've really captured a range of beautiful silver and pewter coloured tones and hues in this photo.

After you posted on my blog about my own itty bitty knight in shining armor, I was determined to find the one you had mentioned!

Glad I did.

Mine is just mini-me to yours!
