Description of Pictures: Hilby, the Skinny German Juggle Boy
Michael Hilby. Best described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is the living proof that being German doesn’t mean you can’t be funny. Hilby is an expert in juggling all sorts of objects and subjects. He also is amazing in countless circus and variety skills such as unicycling, balance stunts and more. He really gets his audience involved and creates magical and hilarious moments through their participation. All that and more! www.hilby.net

Wikipedia Description: Maryland Renaissance Festival
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Maryland Renaissance Festival is a recreation of a fictional 16th century English village named Revel Grove. Located in Crownsville (near Annapolis), the festival is spread over 25 acres and is the second largest renaissance festival in the United States. The Renaissance Festival usually runs from the third week of August to the third week of October every year and as such is a celebration of the autumn harvest.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2004 photos: Equipment this year: I bought two Fujifilm S7000 digital cameras. While they produced excellent images, I found all of the retractable-lens Fuji models had a disturbing tendency to get dust inside the lens. Dark blurs would show up on the images and the camera had to be sent back to the shop in order to get it fixed. I returned one of the cameras when the blurs showed up in the first month. I found myself buying extended warranties on cameras.
Trips this year: (1) Margot and I went off to Scotland for a few days, my first time overseas. (2) I went to Hawaii on business (such a deal!) and extended it, spending a week in Hawaii and another in California. (3) I went to Tennessee to man a booth and extended it to go to my third Fan Fair country music festival.
Number of photos taken this year: 110,000.
