People Watching - Performers

A couple of weekends ago, we spent a nice day at the "Summer Faire", back at Camlann. For me, the best part was watching the people. The most obvious ones to watch were the folks performing -

We watched a medieval-era play. Here is one of the narrators.

The village smithy - hard at work.

Period-specific singers...

"Master Fletcher" - one of the 'presenters'. 'Got to watch various arrow-shooting contests.


And the amazing "Master Payne" - jongleur extraordinaire!

This looks like so much fun! Did you ever manage to go to the Renaissance Festival near Annapolis, Maryland? It started again this weekend.

Oh my gosh...this reminds me of growing up in Laurel Canyon in the late '60's. I used to babysit for the couple who started the first Renaissance Fair and always went along for several years ... until life got in way! I loved the whole scene, especially the costumes! Sigh ... pity this whole growing up stuff. Your photo's bring back many memories - now I really sound old! Love these last few posts but have much catching up to do with all the rest.

Ah, I love Master Payne!

Miss V enjoyed everything, but her personal favorites were archery and scents. I fear she talked the ear off the poor lady who was selling perfumes.
