This weekend I got to go to my first Renaissance Festival! I always thought it was a moving show that had a bunch of bored performers earning a few bucks. Boy was I wrong! It is a permanent facility about 45 minutes from Fort Worth. Most of the performers have been there for years and were fantastic. You could tell they just lived for this stuff. As you can see from the pictures, nearly everyone there was dressed up including visitors. Anyway, a photographers paradise. I took about 250 pictures in the course of about 6 hours. Thankfully I decided to shoot in JPG! It was really fun for me because I am really shy about taking people's pics and these people just hammed it up for the camera. Quality isn't top notch, sun was a killer, but I thought you may enjoy them anyway... 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
