The girl finally met the Knight! (Part 2) - Discretion advised!
Mar 27, 2012

He didn’t perform well! ... Now, she is wondering how to get out of there!

Therefore, no more follow-up and no more Part III, alas!... This is what happens when a pretty and demanding lady bump into a lousy knight!

The moral of this story: “Ladies, beware of pompous, good looking fellows on white horses; the appearances are often deceptive” !

PART III: The knight got snagged by the zipper and bellowed: "Once a king always a king, but once a "night" is enough." . . . LOL :)))

Nicely rendered my friend!

Cheers,
Emil

Did she have him take a protective shell off? There are some rules to follow when handling fully armored knights.

What would be...
In reply to l_objectif, Mar 28, 2012

What would be a "normal" (although very well done) glamourous portrait, is elevated to another level by :

  • the direction of the glance

  • the intriguing props (although I assume that many viewers, especially men, will have a hard time directing their gaze at those props).

Thank you very much, Gene!

Irakly, maybe he didn't and that was the problem! Unfortunatly, good manners are often being ignored in our time!

Roel, your feedback is much appreciated, thanks!

Thank you to all for your comments,

Perhaps she should put him on the rack?

Well taken Louis. And as long as you are not the knight a very amusing annotation.

More please.

Dear Neil and John, thank you so much for your kind feedback!

I am glad for not being a knight, and a pompous, good looking fellow, neither!
I agree, if this is the result of riding a white horse, I prefer a black one!

Best Regards to both,

Mon très Cher Louis,

very strong picture ! Your story is the truth as well...
And finaly, LIFE is not well made...Aahhhhrgghh Les Femmes !

On a beau être courtois et bien élégants...Souvent elle préfèrent les " Gros Durs ",
mais elle s'en mordent les doigts au final...
La vie est mal faîte parfois ....

Pour terminer, ta photo est superbement composée !

as always,

Hugues.
