Saturday we took a short trip to Geneva Ohio for the Great Lakes Medieval Fair. Last year I was so mad at myself because I didn't take spare batteries with me and mine died after about 6 pictures. This year, I was prepared. Not only did I take both cameras with me but I had spare batteries also. I took tons of pictures, or so I thought. I got home and went to pull the card out of my sony. OH NO!!!! No card in the camera. That camera doesn't have an internal memory so I didn't get a single one on it. I can't believe that I didn't notice. Luckily the battery died on that one about half way through the day and I switched to my old camera. At least it wasn't a total loss.
We saw shows but I only have pictures of this one. Too bad, because the washing wenches are hysterical and the naughty baudy babes were pretty good too.
Here are a few of the vendors doing what they do best.
I just couldn't help taking pictures of all the people dressed in costume. Some were very accommodating. The guy in the first picture stopped to let me finish taking the picture. Some were not so pleased like the guy in the center picture who appears to be covering his face. And some were totally unaware of my camera. The guy standing in the third picture is the Sot. He does a very amusing drunken show.
There were plenty of places where you could purchase costumes of your own. I think it would be fun to dress up to go to one of these things but after looking at the prices I'll just settle for the pictures.
