The Rest of Maker Faire

 A last day of pictures from Maker Faire.  These blow up asparagus inspired sculptures were waving like kelp undersea, made by OhYeahToysI really love how they looked all lit up, softly waving and so mysteriously yet familiarly shaped.

 How about outlining your applique in "neon"?  Pretty cool application of new technology.
 We got to hear Adam Savage from Mythbusters talk about filming their recent episode at the White House, very interesting, and of course very funny.
 My son Alex liked these poseable figures with soda bottle heads, you could buy a kit to assemble one.
 One of our favorite vendors was B.Coole Designs, so many great embroidered patches to choose from...This one we got for my son Zach who currently wants to become an organic farmer.
 I couldn't stop giggling when I saw this one, so I had to get it for myself.
 So much geeky humor in this one booth!
 The Lego truck was there, so awesome.  An old mail delivery truck covered in Lego board with zillions of Legos to play with.
 This moose-ish/mossy creature was about 10' tall and quite elegant and stately as it moved through the crowds.
 A gigantic steam-powered contraption, what was it powering this year?
 A player piano of course!
 I loved the whimsy of this sculpture, using a boat to contain the water.
It really was beautiful, all those old instruments, with the beautiful metal and curves under the splashing water, just lovely.

That's it for this year!  Can't wait for next year...
