Body Painting


I think these artist had the longest line of people waiting too see them at the Folk Art Market. I watched them for a while as they painted Henna tattoos on many of the guests. I was so focused on what she was doing that I hadn't even noticed the photographer on the other side of these two women until this evening as I was posting this. I hope you have a great Monday!

You captured a lot in your photo, Randy! I notice the henna artist's facial mask - I wonder if she was from the UAE?

This kind of body painting is very nice.

Magpie said...

Sorry about this...but just what was the photographer doing with his "equipment"? :)

Sharon said...

I'd give this a try. As long as I knew it wasn't permanent.

Judy said...

That is hilarious!

Seems like the other photographer may have some issues other than autofocus! :-) As usual, great photos Randy, keep up the good work!

Sometimes we have "surprises" we only see at home. :D

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is funny. I hope he was thinking about having a henna tattoo done a particular part of his anatomy.

Jarart said...

Too funny! You never know what will show up in the background of a picture.
I love the beautiful costume of the lady doing the painting.

As a photographer we have the luxury of "replaying" a scene to enjoy (or not) the details of the moment. Looks like you captured it all on this one!

Bises,

Some guys just can't leave it alone! Love the native dress of the tattoo artist.

You shouldn't have said anything about the photographer because now I'm concentrating on him!

RedPat said...

That sure gave me a chuckle!

What a fun pic Randy! There's something for everyone. Her outfit, headgear and jewelry is very exotic and beautiful.
Hope you had a fun trip.
Thanks.

Amazing what you miss until the shot is up on your screen, eh?

Halcyon said...

Do you mean you didn't notice that man grabbing his crotch? I could hardly even look at the artist! ;)

Jack said...

I didn't notice the photographer until I read your note and went back to see what you were talking about. Hilarious!

Farmchick said...

I love henna tattoo work. Very intricate and I would have been in line for one!
