Well, we finally made it to the Sherwood Forest Faire. One wouldn’t think it would be that great of a feat being that it’s only about a three hour drive for me. But alas, my children often dictate my schedule more often than I would like.
I have been wanting/trying to get down to this renaissance festival for the last three years and i’m so glad we were finally able to make it. I’m sure by now you have figured out that my love for renaissance festivals is almost as strong as my love for New Orleans and I assume that comes from the never ending supply of interesting people. This faire was no exception. It very much reminded me of Scarborough Faire twenty years ago.
Amongst the normal Renaissance Lords and ladies, shopkeepers and craft makers, Sherwood Forest is home to all things fairy tale and is inhabited by many such creatures. On the day we visited we encountered many fae who made the whole experience so much fun for my son. The two pictured below, Luna Nightwing and Akward MyStump presented glowing and sparkling treasures for Brady to take home and treasure forever. Or until he loses them.Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 70-300 Post Processing: Lightroom, Nik Color Efex Pro, Photoshop Shot Info: 1/250 sec at f 5.6, ISO 560
This little teaser of twelfth century life has left looking forward to another season of Scarborough Faire.
