Thank you so much Antonio!
It is one of my favorite shoots!
I enjoyed myself so much, I want to go back this year!
I even enjoyed the editing, (and I generally hate to edit and do very little of it these days).
Stay tuned for part 3 tomorrow!
And share your thoughts with me, I love that!

Great series. I love the expression on #2 . You can tell he is enjoying the time. There is one living history "event" for lack of better words that I want to get to. That is a rendezvous I know one happens in Idaho during the summer I am not sure where other ones might happen.

Thank you Russell! 
More to come! (I want to get these off my hard drive, I'm going to wipe computer clean)
It's a fun series to share!
I agree about #2, I was surprised that everyone was so natural when I pointed the camera at them. (none of expressions looked fake.
Minnesota has a HUGE Renaissance Festival every year. I've yet to get there!
These folk travel all over and do this!

That would be a visual FEAST for the passionate photographer!
