Medieval Fair ’11

The fair started perfect for everyone this year.  It was sunny and mild with just a little wind. Being Oklahoma, what would anyone expect.  But all good things change.  As more and more people showed up, it became difficult to photograph anything.  Even if people saw me shooting, they would be jostled into me by the pressing throng.  Then the wind picked up and I really didn’t want to change lenses.  I was, a few times, mesmerized by the shower of fine grass particulates that were everywhere.  I stayed from 1:30 to 4:30 on Saturday and 11:30 to 2:00 on Sunday.  The differences in the days were only minor. By 2:00 on Sunday it was just as hot as 4:00 on Saturday.  Maybe the wind was heavier on Sunday. Maybe the crowd was lighter.  I could be wrong.

Sunday I was there with Lia.  At the Tribal Circus acrobat/juggling/comedy show, Martin asked for a volunteer and he chose Lia.  She went up on stage and threw clubs at/to him as he balanced on his balance board on a table.  The scarf work and the fire work was out of their show because of the wind and weather conditions.  It was still a fun twenty of thirty minutes.  I appreciated them appropriately afterwards.

    I am reminded of a time many years ago when I knew Lady Godiva at this very fair.
