I have, thanks to my own promises, until the end of the week to finish editing my novel. It’s doable, but I won’t have time for much else. Also, I might go crazy.
Since I don’t want to abandon my blog all week, this week I’ll be bringing you some of my favorite photos. Most of them are from the new digital camera I got this summer. For today, let’s look at some photos I took at a Renn Faire in August, which is where I went for my bachelorette party. Not sure it really counted as a bachelorette party since Matt, and several other guys were there, but whatever, I had fun.
The fun colors in this picture make me happy. Mostly I think that wearing faerie wings is a bit silly (though these faerie wings are pretty awesome), but as decorative items, I’m a big fan. Also impressed by the creative way they’re displayed in a spiderweb-net.
Not sure exactly why I love this one. It might be the sense of motion that I know is there, even if it’s not evident in the photo. This big green sea dragon thing is a kiddie ride at the faire. I’m also pleased at the expression on the man’s face.
Technically I think she’s selling aromatherapy oils, but this booth feels so much like an apothecary that I feel Shakespeare must be hanging out somewhere nearby.
I LOVE this picture. It’s got an exotic market feel, heightened by the fact that the girl is off center and, more importantly, didn’t look at me until after I snapped the photo.
This one, a photo of everyone leaving the park at the end of the day, seems to me to have a surreal feeling to it. I think it’s the combination of color, lighting, and dust.
Lastly, this image technically doesn’t have anything to do with Renaissance, it’s from one of the mini-gardens sprinkled throughout the faire. I like the look of the spiderwebs (even though I hate spiders) and rock, so I included it.
You can click on any of the images for a larger version. There are a ton more Renn Faire photos, but these are my favorites. I’ll have photos of something or other tomorrow. This is better than photos of my cats, right? Because I could just post photos of my cats until the novel is finished. They’re very cute? Leave your vote in comments…Scotland, or photos of my cats.
