This is me being restrained, y'all, I'm rediscovering these thousands of photos that in most cases, I not only took, but also carefully picked through, and in many cases edited, and even exported from Lightroom in post-ready format, and then just. Sometimes I posted a couple of them to Facebook, or gave them to my sister to use in her farm's website. Sometimes I printed a couple of them, to give people or to hang up on bulletin boards and such. Some got printed and laminated to be used in displays for the farmer's market booth. One got printed huge to be a banner for the farm.
But the rest of them, about two thousand of them, just sat on the goddamned hard drive and did nothing.

Listen, I've not been all that well, and I left derby in a cloud of injury and poor mental health, and there's just whole swathes of 2013 I don't remember. I straight up do not remember them. I don't know what the fuck I was doing. I sure wasn't posting photos.

So anyway. Many of these photos are from that time period.
Here are a bunch from the summer of 2013, when I went to Pennsic. I've been since, but I think that was the last time I went for more than a couple of days.

sepia-toned photo of a woman with a crown of spikes smiling by firelight


man smiling as he sits in front of a log fire

monochrome image of a group of people sitting in camp chairs near a fire
notably, the smiling woman looking sideways in the chair is my best friend, and the blurry man in the background with his wife leaning on his shoulders won the kingship of aethelmearc by right of combat twice but just lost his election bid for state assembly in november so he should have stuck to combat probably

smiling shirtless man in camp chair adds rum to a small plastic Hugs fruit drink by poking a syringe thru the lid
always wondered why first aid kits had those big syringes in them, clearly it's for Rum N Hugs

I mean, it's always been "Libertarian Edgelord" Whack-a-Mole.

But between the Swastika Belt and I Stand With Davius, it's like

Dude, it was a whole mess.

It was also the final nail in the coffin of us ever going back to Pennsic again without first establishing our own camp. I miss it so, so much, but like...nah.

I'm not here to parlay with Nazis.

I think your pictures singlehandedly have kept me off tumblr for an extra day of boycott. (Well, and a busy work day)

I feel the same way about re-enactment! All the packing and unpacking and the way cooking would take up the whole day because you had to be tending the fire, and somehow it was always the women who ended up doing the cooking, despite nobody ever making that a rule. It was just only the women that noticed it needed to be done and did it. Which meant that everyone else was doing interesting things and you were chopping carrots again.

I find the morris gives me the sense of belonging and that adolescent kick of "look how cool I am!" with much, much less preparation and kit involved :)

Ugh, that's disgraceful! No wonder you didn't camp with them again. I hope eventually they drove everyone away and then had to do it themselves! Good for you for making sure she got her pictures.

Our lot weren't that bad. Everyone would pitch in to do camp clear-up, and the men would chop wood without being asked. Also they would chop veg *if someone planned what was to be made and told them what to chop.* But the problem was that there were so many men to women, and the men didn't think about food. So basically all the organization and buying and timing and cooking of meals for 20-odd people three times a day were done by the same 4 women at every event for about 10 years. Which was wearing.
