We went to the King Richard's Faire in Carver in Autumn 2003.
We had been in America for almost 3 years by then and were amused and intrigued by the homage to English Renaissance characters and scenes.
There is a strong fetish undercurrent at the fair - I say undercurrent, because you wander around and into the stalls and see wonderful crafts in leather, cloth and steel and after a while you begin to notice the odd fetish item interspersed: collars, harnesses and something that looks like a horses' bit for people.
That aside, a surprising number of people who visit dress up for the part and womens' attire is definitely bold.
This year we went to photograph Cranberry bogs with the photographic club that I belong to and two friends and I decided to stop by at the Faire on our way home.
Apparently these renaissance fairs are fairly common in America and are a treat to visit. They are colorful and full of buxom lasses all willing to pose for photographers.
You can view a slide show of the images that I took of many of the colorful people that I met there this year.
