The tall ships return to Boston to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the last war fought under sail. I traveled to the Fish Pier and captured some images of:
- Cisne Branco - 249-foot long full rigged tall ship of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Dewaruci - training vessel operated by the Indonesian Navy
- Gloria - official flagship and training vessel of the Colombian Navy
- Guayas - 257-foot long tall ship of Ecuador which trains and preps cadets

Held on 80 acres in Carver MA since 1982, King Richard’s Faire is the largest and longest running Renaissance faire in New England. It runs for eight consecutive weekends from the first weekend in September through October. The recreated 16th village features a marketplace and ten stages of musicians, jugglers, mimes, gymnasts, and other performers. The king’s royal court also presides over contests of jousting knights at regular intervals as onlookers chow down on mead and giant turkey legs.
Lots of shade so a few came out a little grainy. Had to zoom all the way and crop for the joust pictures. I wasn’t quick enough for much of the acrobatic stuff.
There’s always something interesting to photograph, even in a regular suburban backyard. Sometimes you have to wait for it to happen and sometimes you have to seek it out.
