I love this portrait of Zara
I was able to make it to the 2011 Texas Renaissance Festival near Plantersville, TX in November 2011. This is such a great festival - it might be the biggest one in the country; it's full of great performers and the people watching is incredible. One of the best parts of the TRF is the Gypsy Dance Theatre - they perform several shows a day and are absolutely fascinating to watch. The dancers are gorgeous and very professional, the costumes are stunning, and the band members just seem like they are having so much fun - they really are a blast to watch! The only problem with trying to photograph them is not knowing who to watch - there is always so much action going on!
