Where else can you find jousting, turkey legs, and elephants all in the same place? The Maryland Renaissance Festival a great way to end the summer. Based around a fictional 16th-century English town, there are a hundreds of performers, artisans, and attendees dressed in period garb and just about anything else.

A life-long resident of the DC area, I recently started viewing the city from a different angle: behind a camera. I enjoy capturing concerts, dance, and festivals. My photos are often of concerts seen on popular local blogs, such as DCist.
