The Renaissance Faire in the Chicago region is just over the border in Wisconsin. I returned this year after almost 20 years to see how I could capture a part of it.

Here's the set of my favorite images that I dedicate to three wonderful ladies who helped me understand that a different lifestyle than what I am used to was a great growing experience for me. I wish I could learn to "fit in" better, but I'm set in my own ways of shooting, working, and living. A tree branch can only bend so far before it breaks. And, as I know all too well, broken branches hurt the tree for a while, but then help it to grow taller.
