Baltimore HonFest 2016

Some of you may (or may not remember) I posted images from the 2014 HonFest and today revisited the festival (in 97 degree heat...ick!)

History of HonFest:
Grab your boas and tease that beehive! It’s time for the 23rd Annual HONfest. HONfest symbolizes all the charm and goodwill that lies within the hearts of those who live, work, and play in Bawlmer. “Hon” the Bawlmer term of endearment short for “Honey”, embodies the warmth and affection bestowed upon our neighbors and visitors alike by the historic working women of Baltimore. HONfest is an annual celebration in honor of these women.

Here are a few images:


Two Hon's and Baltimore's finest


Tiny Hon who knew how to work it


Shot her 2 years ago... happy to have found her again


A very happy accident (shot from the hip, so focus on the eyes was quite accidental)


A very dapper gentleman

2. Thank you! Man, not in Baltimore

there *was* a breeze now and again but when it wasn't breezy and you couldn't find shade, it was like being in a vat of smelt. I got my first (and hopefully, last) sunburn of the summer.

3. OY! I know how that can be.

I hate crowds, and I hate to sweat! Cool the burn down (with noxzema or somesuch.)
