If interested, you can see what I mean here.
I've also taken a couple days to walk around without the DSLR slung over my shoulder, and those days have felt very freeing. I'm more focused on the people I'm with and on enjoying myself rather than trying to capture all the little moments throughout the day. I think I'll do a bigger blend of both next year - maybe only take the DSLR once a week.
The good news is even though faire ends in three weeks, the following weeks are still exciting - I have a local Comic Con, a Steampunk Masquerade, and FaerieCon to attend, and then we are at Thanksgiving!
Man, where does the time go?
