Faces of the Renaissance

We attended our first Renaissance Festival this weekend. The people and their costumes were all fascinating. We enjoyed capturing the faces of the Renaissance. Hope you enjoy it as well.

We enjoyed watching this beautiful young girl, who we dubbed “Dark Angel.” She was constantly surrounded young men and…………

close behind her was MAMA!!

What a lovely and intriguing set. The tavern maid looks like a jolly romp, but I was curious about the Sheherazade duo. The whole event seems like a hoot.
Did you know that the Beatles' song "Yesterday" was actually adapted from an early Renaissance menuet? I think this is one of Sir Paul's few cases of plagiarism. You can even sing the ancient words to his modern tune. The first verse goes like this:

Leprosy,
Bits and pieces falling off of me,
I'm not half the man I used to me,
Oh, I believe in
Leprosy.

The second verse refers to a disease brought from the New World to the Old and may not be quite in keeping with the charm and interest of your post.
