Nice conversions Geoff.  I really like 3, 4 and 5.  Perhaps worth a tighter crop of 4 and 5 to loose just a bit of the busy background but not so much as to lose the context.

Interesting. The black and white conversion suits the topic.

I’m curious about the men in your photos. We don’t have viking re-enactments in Australia that I’m aware of but the men look familiar: like a lot of men I know who ride old motor bikes: Harley Davidsons, mainly. Do they take off their chain mail and armour and ride off on their Harleys?

I think maybe Viking Re-enactments are probably probably restricted to areas were the Vikings settled areas, apparently beard growth was expected style for men... I didn't see many motorbikes in the area were the re-enactors were camped - as most had shields, swords, spears etc I think it would be difficult to transport them around by bike.....
