Fell & Fair  "After him they rode: a long line of mail-clad men. Swift, shining, fell and fair to look upon." ~Tolkien ⬇️ Join our next adventure! ⬇️


Some girls are looking to be saved by a knight in shining armor, others just want backup. Get a man that can do both. 📷 @emory

"Rise and rise again until lambs become lions." The longbow buys a yeoman's place and arrows keep him free. 📷 @nicolasbruno

"The servants of Sauron I pursue into whatever land they may go... In such need a man that has no horse will go on foot, and he will not ask for leave to follow the trail. Nor will he count the heads of the enemy save with a sword." Now that's some math I can get passionate about! If, "Counting your enemies with a sword" had been a class in school. I would have done much better in the mathematics."

"These are indeed strange days," he muttered. "Dreams and legends spring to life out of the grass." ~Tolkien
It's an amazing thing when legends spring out of the grass. Except they don't. Legends don't just appear, they don't just spontaneously become legends. Legends grind on, slowly. They halt, they fall, they get back up. Legends go through the sleepless nights and over mountains and down rivers. They observe, learn, grow and fail. Only then are legends recognized as such. The wondering word may stand amazed at the meteoric rise of a hero, but that hero spent a lifetime getting there. 📷 @emory

"Alas, not me, lord!" she said. "Shadow lies on me still. Look not to me for healing! I am a shieldmaiden and my hand is ungentle." ~Éowyn

One does not need to bring healing to bring hope. But one can still earn renown without deeds of valor. Both are necessary and both shine the light into the dark. One defending, and the other tending the flame. 📷 @emory

"Then should warlike Harry, like himself, assume the port of Mars..." It's always hard to juggle projects, but spending a little time today working on our Henry V concept shoot. Shot by @98c directed by @amberkay2332 and edited by @landonsenn
New soundtrack, and some more changes to come, but it's all part of the process!

"The arrow sings the song of war and on bowstrings we play the tune." Play on my friends... 📷 @nicolasbruno

"They were once Men. Great Kings of Men. Then Sauron the Deciever gave them Nine Rings of Power. Blinded by their greed, they took them without question, one by one, falling into darkness. And now they are slaves to his will. They are the Nazgûl, Ringwraiths, neither living nor dead." ~Aragorn

Not all evil stalks the world in black. Gold can conceal villainy equally well. 📷 @nicolasbruno

"Ithilien, the garden of Gondor now desolate, kept still a dishevelled dryad loveliness." ~Tolkien

It is funny how beauty is so often to be found in ruined, forgotten places. Often the desolate city among the forest outshines the most bustling metropolis.

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." Live free or die. Happy Independence Day.

"The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot for ever fence it out." ~Tolkien

Darkness knows no border and holds nothing sacred. Pretending it does only leads to greater evil. So be the watchman on the walls and serve those less vigilant lest they be swept away. 📷 @nicolasbruno

"'Loud and clear it sounds in the valleys of the hills,’ he said, ‘and then let all the foes of Gondor flee!’ Putting it to his lips he blew a blast, and the echoes leapt from rock to rock..." ~Tolkien

Let them know you are coming. Let them know there are still those who would fight.
