Jouster, Maryland Renaissance Festival
It’s not just goofy RenFest entertainment, it’s the state sport of Maryland. Seriously.
Sure, you’ll throw away 90% of the shots you take at a ballpark, but those remaining 10% will contain some gems.

This might look like a photo I posted earlier, but it isn’t.
RIP, Matthew Whaley
The Bruton Parish Churchyard is an amazing place and a must-visit when I go to Colonial Williamsburg. Interred within are pre-Colonial, Colonial, and Civil War dead, including “Governor Edward Nott, first rector Rowland Jones, the powerful Thomas Ludwell, merchant John Greenhow, and two infant children of Martha Custis Washington by her first husband.”
This massive marker commemorates the life of Matthew Whaley, age nine, who died in 1705.

Ah, one of the great joys of having an A+ baseball team a half hour away is that you can get incredible shots using the most modest equipment. Sadly, working downtown all of 2011 meant I was unable to catch a single baseball game all season.
That and the whole “soccer is infinitely better” thing…
Another capture from a day spent in Monterey/Carmel Valley wine country. P.S. They’re just really good friends.
