Argh, Pirates Have Feelings Too

Today I took Captain Awesome to a meetup with my photography group at the Festival of Sail, which includes the tall ships, cannon battles, and characters in costume. He comes with me to some photography events, and practices using my old equipment.

At one point, a pirate in full costume approached him and said, "Aye, Matey! Is that a Nikon you shoot with?"

He didn't know how to respond, he just looked at me.

I ended up in an extended conversation with the pirate as he went in and out of character. We discussed photography, cameras, and the perfect lighting earlier in the day.

As we walked away, Captain Awesome rolled his eyes at me and said, "I can't believe you just had a 10-minute conversation with a pirate about Nikon versus Canon."
