Today DH and I ventured off to the Loch Norman Highland Games and Scottish Festival. There was lots to see there and plenty of good camera fodder.
There were kilts of every tartan imagineable from every clan I've ever heard of, and many that I'd not, highland games conducted on the field, pipe bands playing, shepherds "sheeping" and various re-enactment cameos abounded ranging from somewhat medieval to civil war displays.
It was truly quite impressive.
As always, I was drawn to the people and faces. For someone who professes not to be that keen on portrait photography, I seem to do a heck of a lot of it..... though I think that it's more that I am drawn to the character style of that genre and not the dress up party look, if that makes sense.
Is there such a thing as photojournalistic portraiture? If so, then that's probably my bag....
After gadding about we decided to test out yet another of the local haunts for a bite to eat. The Rusty Rudder is a "rock throw" away from our house, which sits on the lake shore, right between the two masts of the yachts to the right.
The food is kind of average American Pub stuff, but the view is stellar and the live band music was pretty good and so was the beer .... I can rather see making this the "local" over the summer months!!....
