Week 29 – #6 The Old and the New

on February 9, 2013

I was lucky enough to have this young man, who unfortunately I only got his first name – Keith, to step aside from the Native American Festival in Sarasota into the shade of the tree.   It was so bright in the mid-afternoon sun that his wonderful dress would have been all washed out.  He had such a wonderful smile, but he became very serious for this photo.

I thought he fits the bill for Old and New.  Here he is in the native dress for his tribe and as you can see, there are some upgrades to what would have been available in years gone by.  And he is the “New” part of this with the native clothing being from the “Old”.

This Native American Festival was not a powwow and I have yet to go to one.  I am going to try to fit in the next powwow in the area.  For those who are interested, there will be a Powwow in Ft McCoy, FL on 4/5 – 4/7, 2013.   for more information

    Very nicely done. Every part of his clothing is beautifully crafted, and the horns showing behind the headdress are an added bonus.

    This is such a beautiful, colorful photograph and I like the depth of field. Very nice.

    A very handsome portrait that captures the pride of this “warrior.”

    Super shot with all of the variations of color. This would certainly be a winner in the FCCC.
