There's something really quite extraordinary about seeing eminent scientists, historic figures - ones that you are somewhat in awe of - 'goofing off'.

I never really got over dancing with Denisyuk and Benton in a Chicago night club (RIP to both) - or seeing Denisyuk in his swimming trunks at the Lake Forest Holography Symposium as he went for his morning dip in Lake Michigan.

So, it's with that sense of the surreal that I bring you these photos taken at Ruthin Castle Mediaeval banquet. Here is King Hans Bjelkhagan and Emeritus Professor of Optics Prince T. Jeong et al. Giggle... perhaps someone could kindly name everyone for me?

Looking at your photos is like a two sided "mediaeval" sword. On the one side I am excited, happy and tingly all over and feel like I am almost there. On the other side I want to cry because I was not there.
I love holography and I love castles. I believe there is some dormant brain gene that was inherited from my father’s side, he was born in Italy, in which sometime someone in my ancestral past was in some way connected to a castle. It is something I cannot explain. I truly missed a once in a lifetime opportunity. ;-(
Great photos and thanks again.

John, we'll do it again, big time. Unfortunately not many mediaeval castles in US though! But we can do another fun thing there.

Dear Pinar d.
I looked at your blog and I wished I could understand! It looks great - wonderful illustrations on interference.
Now I'm wondering whether Nerdee is the female version of Nerd?
Thanks for the compliments on my blog.
Best wishes,
