A very happy man, clearly enjoying his beer or whatever drink he has in his tankard. What period does he re-enact? An interesting picture anyway.

Quite cool shot of a festival performer on a well deserved break. There's a fun contrast between a well planned attire and a temporary structure and simple bench and table in the background.

Friday night, what an apt time to see this image. I must get a beer and raise it in return, it would be rude not to! A great capture of this scene, with really good light. The mans smile seems so warm and genuine too.
Thanks for sharing

This actor had taken seriusely his role on the scene, Eleu.
Happy and content face expression, and impressive sword he is wearing.
have a nice weekend,

An interesting and cheerful photo. I think the brew in his tankard is likely to be of a more modern style than his renaissance outfit.

Fine fun candid of the Renaissance Faire participant.
I went to my first Faire in the late 60s when they were an outgrowth of the Hippie movement. They are perhaps more popular now, at least in northern California where they are celebrated annually at San Francisco, Fairfield, San Jose, Folsom, Lake Tahoe, etc., and even my hometown of Cameron Park.
They vaguely represent a medieval costume party with actors, knights, royalty, shows, food and drink, and primarily an excuse to dress up and pretend.
Thanks for sharing,

Cheers! He's a jolly good fella in full gear all right, you've made me thirsty!! Great fun filled candid shot which works really well almost like he's saying "come on and join me" A gentle posture and profile, hand stretched out, the smile and of course a very good chilled brew and the sword. Just love the bright colours, light and shadow, adequate clarity and eye leveled pov and naturalness of it all. The whole scene represents a festive feel to it, I bet he would be proud to get a copy of this picture. Well done, Great snap. Congrats
