dancer at Taos Pueblo pow-wow

Too many photographers! Shooting between heads, sigh.

This is from the 7:30 p.m. Grand Entry at the 2013 Taos Pueblo Pow-wow.

Unfortunately, there were scads of guys with telephoto lenses sneaking around. Every year it seems there are more. I tried to act like, “Hey, I’m different!” But next year I’ll probably leave my camera at home.

      Wasn’t fishing for compliments, but that will do. (Thank you!) And realistically, I’m having too much fun not to take the camera, so…
