Roll: Louisiana Renaissance Festival

On Sunday, Katie and I journeyed to the Village of Albright (otherwise known as the Louisiana Renaissance Festival in Hammond, Louisiana). 

We're huge fans of the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin, so we were super excited about exploring Louisiana's own festival. While much smaller than Bristol, Albright still has a lot to do, see and taste. The landscape is quite pleasant, with the entire village surrounding a large pond. We had fun just eating snacks by the water and watching the scores of interesting people walk by. One gigantic advantage to the Louisiana Festival is that it takes place later in the year, so the weather is much nicer than the sweltering August days of Wisconsin's faire, where temperatures have been around 100 degrees on some weekends. Sunday was probably the first time I actually felt comfortable wearing my Renaissance outfit outdoors!

Here are some photos I took during our time in Albright. I used my Pentax LX with a 50mm f/1.4 Lens and Kodak T-Max 400 film.
