Sorry, I can't get away from the beauty that is the Comparsa Orgullo Morelense Cemiac dancers


I find the expression on the face of this blue-eyed, blonde-haired headdress captivating. And I love the motion of the beads and fringe.

More captured motion--look at that fringe on the headdress on the right! That's Mr. Arenales, the man you learned about in yesterday's post.

Several more headdresses with fringe in full swing.


When you consider that the adult costumes weigh 80 pounds or more, I'll wager, it's easy to understand why the child's costume is not beaded, nor is there the huge headdress. I'll bet that child is still excited to be a part of the group.


Look at the needlework on this one. I'll bet it weighs more than 80 pounds. I love the fringe swaying, too.


Here's the back of it. Magnificent!

Groups of dancers close enough together that I could crop to show some details and some movement.

What faces! Yes, it's fair season around here too.

You are so lucky to have an event like this in your city streets! For Portland's sake, I hope they make it a tradition.

Happy to see more. I think I would have run out of room on my card shooting this event.
