Guess how many Americans correctly answered this basic financial question: Is the stock of a single company usually safer than a mutual fund? A) 100% B) 80% C) 60% D) None of the above.

The question, included in a survey by a pair of college professors, underscores a fundamental problem facing millions of Americans.

Last Saturday, Diane Trimble and a group of fellow photographer colleagues attended the Renaissance Pleasure Faire of Southern California in Irwindale. The yearly fair is a reenactment of the 1580s. Performers dressed in Elizabethan costumes roam the grounds, portraying the defining classes of the time, from nobility to laborers. “It was fun to watch this gentleman,” Trimble said. “A large crowd gathered to watch as children laughed and chased the bubbles blown from his finger tips.” Trimble took the photo with her Canon 60D.
