African Marketplace

I spent part of my morning at the African Marketplace & Cultural Affair. I wish I had been able to hang around long enough to hear at least a couple of the many bands that were going to play during the day. Still, being the artist at heart that I am, I've always appreciated the African craftsmanship and art. So, my camera and I had a great time and luckily no one told me not to take any pictures of their work. Of course, I had to share some of them.

Jayne - Thank you. I wish I'd thought to get pictures of the beautiful fabric. I was too busy trying to figure out which ones I wanted to buy... and did! :-D

Klaus - I had such a good time with these. And I'm so glad you got that blue sky this morning!! Cool! There is always the clear blue after the storm, isn't there? ;-)

Wow, aren't those carvings something! Great photo subject, but I bet they were even more interesting to look at in person.
