Willits Frontier Days part 3, Street Dance
Here in Willits, California we really know how to have a good time. After the evening rodeo, the spectators mosey over to the stage area for a dance. The band, SK2, has the brilliant Flying Eagle ferris wheel and the rest of Johnston Amusements rides as a backdrop. The community at large comes out for a good time and great music. There are sodas and water for the kids and non-drinkers in one corner, and if you had your hand stamped at the gate, you can purchase a cold beer in the other corner. The dance is where you can hang with old friends, make some new ones, and run into neighbors and elected officials. Hey, its a small town. If you don't know someone, stick out your hand and say, "Hi!" Ten to one, you will have some mutual friends.
If you were at the dance, did you have a good time? Can you find yourself? Steve M. I see you.
This photo was taken from the roof of the beer truck on July 3rd at 11:45 PM with a Canon EOS 40D. I had an off camera flash that I popped to give some light to the foreground. Exposure 1/30s at f/3.5 on a tripod. ISO 800. Focal length 44mm.
