This is Angela, her daughter, and friends at the TRF. They are all glowing.
And next up is Marla Hedden's portrait of Amelia, at Bristol.
Books are on the way to these photographers--and again, thanks to all, for making my day, especially as winter settles in, here in New England.

Well Met: Renaissance Faires and the American Counterculture will be out next month on November 19!
