    Good day.
    As some may know, I am an avid history fan.. Only reason why I still don't have a suit is that my car takes up $$ and my original plate mail was stolen when I moved to US...

    We went to a renaissance fair over the weekend.. I manages to snap / take (chose the appropriate) around 300 pictures...
    Here are some of them.

    He was a Scholar's father.. I may post a shot or two of the scholar in further parts.

    This Gentleman was the owner of a Barbershop. They would braid hair.
    Twas a pleasure to chat up with him.
    too bad they asked for no flash inside, and I had no tripod, but he'd employed a wench, a witch, two bards and an arab. :)

    A bard.
    Met us right on the entrance. He was pretty handy with that little instrument of his too... Nothing else matters played by a medieval bard... was priceless.

    Met a pirate king.
    He was the nicest pirate i've ever met.. aside from mr. Depp.. But, when I met Depp, he wasn't necessarily in Character, and this pirate was. :)

    Kids were ecstatic, parents surprised, the elephant was happy, moms were watching kids, dads were checking out lass leading the elephant, and this old man, the owner, was... bored.

    Right in front of us a tragedy has occured.. A lady pirate became an ex-pirate. She would walk and cry, and ask to be hired by someone evil..

    A beautiful flower girl was walking around selling roses.. had to remind meself that I am almost married (happily). She is a true beauty, methinks.
