Ye Olde Monday Morning Blog Post: Ohio Renaissance Festival

One of my favorite things to do is people watch - something that my husband and I have learned to enjoy doing together over the years. If you haven't done it, try it. Pick a public place, sit still for about 30 minutes, you'll be amazed at the diversity of people that pass you by. There's no better place for people watching (and taking photos) than a Renaissance Festival. This was only my second time attending one of these, and the first since I've become serious about photography. We couldn't have chosen a better day - the weather was warm, sunny, and the people were out in force. There were pirates, queens, dancers, Scotsmen, beggars, families and children all dressed to match, and even a Klingon (my friend K.C. and I determined he must have been a time traveler, since he was quite out of the period). Here are just some fun, candid photos from the festival.
We were also very fortunate to hear an amazing Scottish music group called Albannach - "outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes". Talk about high energy. They were amazing. Check them out at http://www.albannachmusic.com/

LOL! How do you think writers come up with such diverse characters in a book?

I love minor league ball games for that reason, too. Oh, and taking a cruise. Dear Lord, the variety there!
