THE MAIDEN OF SWORDS

There is this little town here in Texas that hosts a yearly event called the Texas Renaissance Festival. All of the vendors and lots of guests dress up in olde time costumes anywhere from fairies to warriors in shining armor. All of the food is also theme based with items such as turkey legs and stuffed potatoes. I wonder what our fascination is with places like these. Do we actually long for simpler times where survival was priority one and justice was swift?

I asked this girl to come out into the proper light to get this photo. Sometimes when you ask someone for a photo, they’ll say,”sure”, put their hands on their hips and give a big school photo grin. I suggest that you slow things down. Consider the light. Consider the background. Consider the pose, and create something you can both be proud of.
