Default Dance performer at the Pow Wow

This young man was amazing. First, please excuse the really poor quality of the photos but, a number of factors kept me from getting better shots. Not the least of which was where I had to shoot from and low light gave me a real problem trying to lock focus. Anyway, excuses aside. You might get a faint idea of what was involved in the dance. This is one instance where a video cam would have been better. In this dance, you could see the formation of different images he would make with the hoops, such as a bee, a butterfly, flower, etc. it was really cool.

He starts out with all his hoops on the floor of the stage and as he comes on, he uses his feet to pick them up...




















Hope you enjoyed the show!

Very strange - none of these will load for me (and I'm using a VPN so it's not a blocked site).

What site are they stored on John ?

The photos are hosted on Zenfolio. They're not visible right now due to site maintenance there. I can copy one of the individual links and paste it into a new browser window, and see a message that their site is undergoing maintenance until 4:00PST (12:00GMT).

Thanks Jim ! Guess I'll just have to have a little patience.

It looks like they're visible now.

Thanks Jim but only one shot will load (#3) ...... the others have the dreaded little blue box enclosing a Question Mark.

Hmmm... very strange, Kev. they're all visible at this end. Naturally, the worst shot of the bunch is the one you can see.
Perhaps they'll show up later.

All are visible from here, although loading very slowly.

Amazing performance - and some really nice captures too!

Thank you, Mole.
I'm wonder if Zenfolio is having a problem?

Zenfolio was down for maintenance a couple of days ago, but all your pictures are showing now, and it seems to be working fine now.
