Patchie [Captures]

I can't believe we're down to only three weeks of faire left already. This season has flown by in a way no season before it has. Maybe being gone one weekend made it feel that way. I've also spent fewer days wandering by myself than I did last year and that mostly comes from knowing so many people up there at this point, and that list continues to grow and grow. It's nice and makes the days go by very quickly, but it also means I'm not as snap-happy as I was last year. But I think the quality is higher...I'm taking the time to capture moments rather than trying to capture everything.

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?
