Call to Prayer

Sidi Goma
Sidi Goma are black Indians from Gujarat. Their roots are in Africa, their spirituality is in Islam, and they were in Tacoma last week for a performance at the Giant Magnet festival. They opened with a traditional call to prayer, and ended with some feisty dancing that seemed far more African than Indian. They can seriously dance their spirituality!

Damp Days

So far, spring has been cold and wet. So cold and wet as to discourage photography outdoors. But it doesn't stop me from bringing the outdoors indoors, for some fun with my little macro studio. And those rain droplets on the tiny leaves of this flower stem remind that there's pure beauty in all that precipitation!
