A few pictures of the Original Greek Festival @GreekFest_HouTX

Because of the perfect weather, I really wanted to be outside as much as possible and snap some pictures. I went to the Greek Festival on Saturday and brought my Nikon D610 and 24-70mm f/2.8 with me. Simple setup, but the perfect focal length for this. The event itself was very fun (the Greeks didn’t even notice the Persian in their midst!) and while I was enjoying the food and chit chatting with friends and meeting new people, I mostly put the camera away and instead brought it out during the dance Program. To say the show was high energy is an understatement. I liked the 5 PM show so much that I decided to go on the 7 PM show too (the 5 PM show being the wider show while the 7 pm show being closer).

It was a packed house each time. Interesting side-note, the stage lights were tungsten colored and the outside window as daylight so when setting the proper white balance for the stage, the window turned into a cobalt blue. Thanks Joe McNally!

Earlier in the day I went to an event called Afloat! Which was supposed to have hundreds of boats on the bayou at Allen’s Landing, but let’s just say that event was a dud. In their defense it was postponed from a few weeks ago and things didn’t seem to work out and they even made a small child cry. All the poor kid kept asking his mom was “mommy, where are the boats? Where are the boats? 😦 ” I digress.
