San Francisco; March 2010
The setting was the Saturday farmers’ market at the San Francisco Ferry Building in early spring. The sun was shining and the stalls were selling asparagus, strawberries and spring flowers – branches of pink blossoms and bunches of fragrant narcissus. Around the corner by the water, I saw these buskers – a band and a hula hoop dancer.
I love the retro cool factor of hula dancing and way the tie-dye swirls on her t-shirt echo the spinning of the hoop. It’s also an amazing reminder of how warm it was on this California day in mid-March – she’s not exactly wearing much! Two months later it’s cold and foggy and I fear that San Francisco’s summer malaise might be setting in.
This post is my contribution to Photo Friday, a weekly blogging event hosted by Debbie of Delicious Baby. Please visit her site to see her gorgeous photo of her daughter in traditional Turkish garb and all this week’s submissions.
Thank you to everyone who made a guess about the subject matter of last week’s photo. It was indeed a koala ear. It was taken at Australia Zoo in Queensland.
