SF Indian Market #4


This is the singer and the drummer that accompanied the dancers. While I was focused on them I was taken by the bracelet on the singers wrist. That is one amazing piece of turquoise that they found to make this piece. Click on the photo for a larger peek.

In addition to the big chunk of silver in the setting, I'd say he was wearing my retirement on his wrist!

Their clothes are so colorful, aren't they? Good focus!

Just about everything at Indian Market is colorful! Yes, his bracelet is remarkable, just as so much of the Indians' jewelry is!! You got a great shot of him despite the crowds which made taking photos very difficult.

I love the blue in his outfit Randy and that bracelet is something else. It's like something Liz Taylor would have worn!

I would now have noticed had you not pointed it out. Someone could get hurt with that hunk of rock.

Magpie said...

That is amazing! I wonder how heavy it is?

Really astonishing!

I've seen a lot of turquoise, including what seemed like huge belt buckles, but I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this. It is to die for. Wonderful shot.

That bracelet IS amazing! I'm glad you're there taking photos, so those of us not in Santa Fe can enjoy glimpses of this event.

Wonderfully colourful. Perhaps he subscribes to the 'when I grow old I shall wear purple..' philosophy.

What an amazing series of photos, amazing bracelet, stunning cape. But most of all, I love that the older gentlemen is out and about and sharing his folklore.

Jack said...

I don't think I have ever seen a slab of turquoise that big. Amazing.

becky said...

That is one big stone for sure! Wow. Great to see these shots of the market.
Gosh, so you have a problem w/ noisy neighbors, too. How do you deal w/ it? Without peace & quiet, I am not the happiest camper!
Hope school is off to a good start for you. Tomorrow I get to get on the wheel for the first time in over a year!
