The tip of the sword looks bloodied - hope it isn't from going after photographers!
This is the second year I've seen Shunyata perform at the Texas Renaissance Festival - they put on a great show and it's well worth attending. The problem I have as a shooter is most of the time they are in almost direct sunlight and there are a lot of harsh, unflattering shadows - what a bummer! Maybe this year I will catch them on a nice cloudy day and try to do them justice - they are great dancers!
I took these photos at the 2011 Texas Renaissance Festival in November 2011.
