SCA, ever here of it? This is the Society for Creative Anachronism. It is becoming more popular. I say that because I am catching more articles by chance on the Internet. What it is, is an ". . . international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe." A link to the organization's website is at the bottom of this blog entry.
I saw a glimpse of Dave and his fellow NW Indiana SCA's last summer. I will have to go back and post. Today was especially fun because it was targeted to introduce the children and their parents to the "history" of the 17th-centrury, in a fun and informative way. I could not stop smiling watching all of the children with their eyes glued to the simulated fights, stories, questions, and all of the SCA members dressed in their garb.
So, I will stop writing . . . here are some photos of the Midieval Festival hosted by the Valparaiso Library. Remember, you can click on the photo to enlarge, and to index to the next photo.
I will say, next time I photograph SCA, I am upping my shutter speed . . .
