French Peasant on a Bicycle

Actually an American soldier in disguise as part of the WWII Tank Ambush at History Alive.

A very well put together scene, well played by all the re-enactors involved.

    Is he really an American soldier, or an Aussie pretending to be an American soldier pretending to be a French peasant?

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/unrelatedpatterns] You nailed it with the second part ;-)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/dadegroot] I could tell, he looked Australian. ;-)
    Joking aside, it's a great image. The focus is excellent and really draws him out from the background, almost 3D-ish effect.
