Michelle and I went with our friend Fernando to the 2008 Arizona Renaissance Festival this past Sunday. It was opening weekend, the weather was great and the crowd was out in full force. This is only our 2nd year going to this event and I really enjoy it. The costumes, the entertainment and the crafts on display make for some great photographic opportunities. I am very pleased with the pictures that I have from this event – it feels like I am improving. I have a ton of pictures to share but I will start with my favorite from the festival – Twig The Fairy:
She stays in character when she is out with the crowd and hands out little marbles with fairy dust – the kids love her. Here is another photo of Twig The Fairy:
She was very gracious in letting me take a few photos and I really appreciated it. In the next few days I’ll share more photos from the festival in the following categories:
- Characters from the festival (performers, crowd, etc)
- Pictures from the birds of prey exhibit
Hope you enjoy!
