Photographer's Playground - Renaissance Faire in Irwindale, California

Normally when I'm out and about and see an interesting person I'd like to photograph, I usually hesitate because I'm not sure they want their photo taken. Not the case with my day trip to the Renaissance Faire in Irwindale, California. 

People come from all around in full costume and they not only don't mind, they actually enjoy having their photos taken. This makes for a great chance to capture a few hundred shots or more in an afternoon. In addition to the photo opportunity, the Faire is also filled with things to do, shows to watch, music to listen to and good food to eat. To find out if there is a faire near you, check this online directory

Here are just a few of my favorite images from the afternoon along with the app recipes below.
