KYHRF ’08 – Weekend 1

Well, wow.  First weekend of the KYHRF has come and gone in a whirlwind.  It was a GREAT weekend.  I was standing at the front gate, watching Doktor Kaboom do his thing and a thought crossed my mind.  It was so familiar and good, that it seemed like August 07-May 08 passed like a breeze and got skipped.  It was like we never left last July.  That was a good feeling.

I have gotten the photos from the faire up.  Well, minus the Equestrian Arts show, which require a bit more cutting.

Death warmed over!

Overall, a good weekend.  Friday was killer, for two reasons.  It was a good night, but I was BLASTED and didnt get home till almost 7am Saturday.   Hung out with a couple friends, met new ones.  Saturday came and I found myself getting 4 new tires (in order to avoid a blow-out) which really put a cramp on my fun for this month, considering my search for a roommate has been tough, and I have no one to help with the May bills and such – ouch…  Saturday night was me on the couch watching bad movies and playing a little WoW (which I have not done in excess for a long time)

Celtic Fest 2007 Photos (late, I know)

While the people who needed the photos have had them for a while now, I have finally been able to access them after a near fatal drive crash. There are now close to 200 photos from the awesome night that was Celtic Fest 2007. I apologize for the delay, but I wanted to make sure I could get them backed up properly before I made any changes to them. They are all now safe, save for the 2nd day. They were lost beyond recovery, unfortunately. <cries> I was, however, able to save all the Mickey Finns!  So, here they are:

Gearing up for Faire

The faire season is fast approaching.  So much to do, so little time to do it.  I have my rig to inventory and get set up and  cleaned, tent to check, garb to get cleaned and hung and found.  I have to get a new belt config, since I will actually be carrying both cameras instead of switching lenses.  I want a flash battery pack for fast recharge and strobing…  I have to get business cards printed up with pertinent information regarding the faire and the photo site for the faire.  Speaking of the site, yeah, I have to rework it for the new season and archive the old photos.  That is mostly done….

What to Shoot?

Ok, so I have been hibernating lately, getting the photos from 2007 together for archiving and sending to the required parties (Tami and KYHRF) and I have realized, after my trip to Reelfoot Lake back in January (2007) I have not done any outdoor or nature shots.  Everything else I have shot this year has been Renfaires, parties, dances and  conferences.

I need some ideas of places to hit up for interesting and artistic subjects.  I want to stay within an hour driving time of Louisville.  Also, if anyone wants to tag along, I have extra cameras and will give free instruction.

Been a while…

I am still here, just lurking while I put things together.  I took last week off (not from work, but from everything else) and did nothing.  I feel bad about it, I know people are waiting on the photos from the last weekend of the fair.  I did get the “After Hours” album uploaded.  If you want to see it, you will need to contact a cast member, as I was requested to keep those private…  There will be more photos later this week, I promise.
