Lady of the Lakes Renaissance Faire

I got to go to the Renaissance Faire this year and I was so excited! I hadn’t been since I was a kid and I adore the playful atmosphere! 




A royal procession.


This was Josh, who cheerfully marketed his $3.00 fencing station as “affordable violence”.


Here he is distributing vests, swords, and helmets between two siblings. A balloon was attached to each helmet. The first one to pop their opponent’s ballon was the winner. 


The young lady was beaten so quickly by her brother that he afforded her a second chance. 



A rainy joust.



Ladies in waiting.


These knights lovingly try to prepare this little boy for a joust before their own battle.




And finally, as I was making my way out, I found this gentleman with his cat - harnessed with the tiniest pair of dragon wings.

Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche and The Great Cross

One of my mother’s favorite places in St. Augustine is the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche. It is a beautifully picturesque place of worship with a large cross just a short walk away.

Chameleon

I loved the sleepy expression of this chameleon at a local pet shop!

The Dark Art Experience

DRIP hosted a Dark Art event featuring unusual and spooky art for the Halloween season. 


Some of the highlights included John, an artist and designer who frequently collaborates with DRIP. Here he is with one of the three squirrels he rehabilitated after hurricane Irma.


Ashlyn, John’s daughter, dancing with hoops. 

This unique and talented family was defiantly a stand out at the Dark Art Experience.

Composition

I took this picture of a bug clinging to the steps leading up to my job. It wasn’t until I looked at it later that I realized how beautiful the composition turned out. The intersecting lines of the steps and shadow are contrasted by the organic chaos of the gathered leaves. One random moment of me stopping to admire a little bug came to have a strikingly modern resonance.
