November Photo a Day Challenge – Texture

Standard

My blogger friend Cee introduced me to the November Photo a Day challenge on City Sonnets. Today’s prompt is Textures.

I used to participate in De Monte Y Mar‘s Tuesdays of Texture challenge, but it became sporadic after Hurricane Maria. I miss it so. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

To help photographers get over prompt withdrawal, during the month of June ARHtistic License will be posting its own daily prompt that can be interpreted in any art.

I’d Rather Be…

I’d Rather Be…

Who are these friendly people extending their hands toward one another? See their smiles?

The arthritis in my left hip has reached critical mass, and until well after my hip replacement surgery in July, there are certain things I can’t do.

When I saw The Daily Post’s photo challenge this past week, I knew exactly how I would finish this sentence. You see, yesterday was the 31st Phoenix International Folk Dance Festival. I brought my camera and took lots of pictures, but I’d rather be…dancing.

Those lovely people above who look so happy are dancing to an American folk tune called Paul Jones and executing a square dance figure known as a grand right and left. If you scroll through the photos at just the right speed, you’ll get a feel for the sequence.

Or you could watch the short video below.

The festival was delightful, but I missed out on the best fun, the dancing. I have lots more pictures, so I’ll post a whole photo essay on the festival soon.
