2014 3D Fantasy

Because it is so far out of the way, I was not necessarily expecting to end up at the Travelers Cross Fantasy Faire this year. As it turned out, however, I was staying in the general area over the weekend at the annual AR-OK ELCA Synod conference, and the events coincided. Since I was not a congregational delegate, I was basically just along for the ride to play guitar on Saturday evening. Rather than cooling my heels in Tulsa, I took the jaunt to the faire.

The previous incarnation of this even that I attended two years before was called the Spirit of Magic Faire. Since then it has moved to a different part of the property that is shaping up nicely for faire purposes. The vendors were well spaced, and there were several event areas, including what appeared to be two versions of traveling courts, a roughhousing swordplay area, a minstrel stage, a kitchen, and a children’s activities place for the child in us all.

I was also trying out a new toy that I picked up, a digital 3D camera, but the resolution proved to be a bit lower that I would like. Also, while there are two lens openings, it seems to only process one image at a time, so it only works right for still shots, making it no better than the iPhone app. Still, it has been a while since I’ve done any 3D pics. So here is the best of the lot online along with the pictures from my iPhone:

This is a sign that I passed on the way to the faire. I think it may be good advice.
