Renaissance Faire - YAO!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

"YAO" is a way of life. :-) It all started because of Steve. I seriously blame him. Every time he gets really excited (which is often) - ESPECIALLy about a great shot, he lets out this primal howl. Something like "YAOoooooooo!" and it's been totally infectious. By the end of the day when we were all down in LA, we were all letting out "Yao"'s along the way.

So though Steve was "Yao"-ing all day when we went to the Renaissance Faire, I was a little more frustrated. In fact, I thought about not blogging this trip at all - I didn't feel like I got anything blog-worthy at all - but I half-promised. So, here they are!

The Poxy Boggards (I believe):

Richard from "Sound & Fury" - one of my FAVORITE acting troupes (though they are not for young ears....like many things at the Faire)

An unexpected (and funny) moment during their final number:

This dude had a great costume - it looked like he was ready to jump off a building and try to fly. ;-)

This is probably my favorite of the day - this woman was hilarious!

The Queen (Queen Elizabeth I):

Only the costumes give away where this is for me. It's such a funny and "Old America" type shot.

Much better than I could do!

Haha! I wish I had had this when I was a drum major in high school or college:

This kiddo was hilarious - he LOVED the camera and practically attacked Steve before trying some horizontal vogue moves -

And a colorful drumline shot. ;-)

Ok, that's all. Wedding images from last weekend coming soon!

Sigh... Wish I could have gone this year. I always enjoy the renfair, it's like stepping into another world, especially through your viewfinder. I stumbled on last year's pics recently...

Take care,
