10/1/2011 – Fishers Renaissance Faire and Misc

Looking back on this particular album, there was clearly a LOT going on in these few days. Well, I shouldn’t say that exactly. There was a lot going on that I felt the need to photograph anyway.

It all started with a most righteous sunset. I recall vividly driving down the interstate thinking to myself, “I must get a photo of that” but not really finding anywhere reasonably legal to stop. Sadly, sunset are very temporary situations so I had to settle for this at the Zionsville 65 exit.

I had it in my head to shoot Purdue’s campus at night for ages but when I finally did so, it was a night plagued by rain. I got all of one usable shot before I ran for the car.

The next day saw the dawning of Fishers Renaissance faire. These events are always prime spots for impromptu portraiture. I’m never really sure how much these people appreciate my pictures but I think they’d be pleased… maybe? Well, not these three.

And I am absolutely CERTAIN I saw this dude on the cover of the original D&D Players manual. Level one Elf. Dexterity bonus +2!

However, do be careful when putting on your makeup in the mirror.

This dude wanted me to make sure that I “got the spell”. Oh yeah. I did not point out that he was wearing armour that would have caused him to be unable to cast a spell. Unless, of course, he was a Mage/Fighter.

And this jubilant faerie seems absolutely giddy to be there.

Even Elizabeth Regina paid the town a visit.

Shutter speed was just a HAIR slow on this one but you can clearly see both halves of the apple.

And this is one attendee who does NOT have difficulty with troublesome nose hair.

And this little fairie needs to take it easy on the happy juice.

All in all, absolutely a smashing few days from the back of a camera.
