Fine shots that immediately made me think "The Princess Bride", Elizabeth.

Wait! And sword fights, too??? WOW!

Touchè, in the top picture - single sword catches the double. Great pictures of Zorro and D'Artagnan's meeting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Louis! smile

That lady on the right has a too big grin, don't tell me the fight is about her???? Well maybe we need to say: 'May the best man win'....
Great pictures and I love the determination on the face. (bottom picture)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile We'll never know!
Thank you so much, Astrid!

Oh dear, this looks like serious stuff although the umpire does not seem too concerned. I'm intrigued by what the chap on the left is holding. Part of it looks a bit liking a rowing boat rowlock.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Serious! smile
Well - I know nothing about rowing boats... but I can tell you what he's holding is a sword in each hand - in the cross move attempt to keep the opponents sword at arms length. The protruding parts you may be talking about are the quillons - the pieces that are meant to protect his hands.

The man on the left looks like Frank - I like this b&w photo very much.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He does have the same chiseled cheek bones, and facial hair!
Thank you very much!

Great action shot Elizabeth, especially the lung by the right hand swordsman. I also like the lady smiling .
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, very much, Chad!
Now that would be fun.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was fun - the great part is that they didn't really seem to be "performing" a rehearsed play - but it was as if they had to practice and thought "Well, let's just dress up and see if we can get some tips at Dia de los Muertos"! smile
Great shots again. Good to see there are thingies on the ends of the swords.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks very much, Brian!
Zorro rides again!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He'll always be somewhere!
I like the way the woman is smiling...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too! smile
Too fast action for Frank and his wind up Nikon Ellie.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ooooh I wouldn't think so!
