Photo: People Are the Festival

Enlarge this photo to see some great people shots in the crowd.

Can you see the guy in black and white?

There are many interesting and engaged people attending this Native American Hoop Dance Festival at the Heard Museum and there are lots of great things being sold at this market.

And then look at the person competing who is rolling his hoop. All spectator eyes are on him.

Today is theme day and the theme is Festivals and Outdoor markets.

Check out magnificent underwater photos of Aitutaki at Viva la Voyage!

Neat capture. It'd be hard to take your eyes off that guy with the hoop.

Julie said...

He is working hard on that hoop. And he is not so very old either. I suspect the guy in B&W is also a 'hooper' judging from the stuff on the ground next to him.

Love when an outdoor market has entertainment such as this. You've captured it so beautifully. Wonderful colours and movement.

This is a fascinating shot. I guess the guy in B&W is also performing?

The hoop dancer has such a concentrated look on his face. The clothes are so colorful. You got a great shot.

I love the orange, it's falmbouyant without being tacky and you're right about the guy in B&W, he looks wonderful.

Kate said...

You captured the look of concentation of the dancer, the energy of the dance, and the obvious pleasure of the onlookers.

Hilda said...

This is a unique and wonderful choice for the theme! I would have loved to see his performance.

Randy said...

He looks so familiar. I think he was here for Indian Market in 2009. Wonderful photo!
