Outlander Tonight

Spoiler stills from tonight, called Surrender.

Jamie and Clare both Surrender in their own ways, in this pivotal epi, albeit 200 years apart, they remain connected by similar cathartic experiences.

The transformation of Jamie to one hiding in a cave is particularly stirring. I had a hard time recognizing his gaunt, dirty and distant persona 6 years after bloody Culloden.

He is a hunted animal, and heroic in saving young Fergus.

Outlander is remarkable. ☆☆☆☆


51st Acorn Festival & Pow Wow

The colors, the drums, the singing, the entire ensemble of the Me-Wuk Nation at Toulomne, California held the 51st annual gathering last week and my friend JR Sikoryak and I attended for an event of powerful beauty, even majesty. I concentrated on photographing the dancers and took a few videos as well. The photographs I took here, were all on September 9, 2017.

My favorite male dancer of the weekend, he also judged some of the young Nation participants.

This feathered headdress was sitting just feet from where we enjoyed the participants.

The young Nation dancers were full of energy.

Some costumes were memorable.

Here’s a short peek at the Dancing.

Even young girls were very well represented.

Judging for the contests.

This masked young man caught my eye.

JR and I at the Pow Wow.

My favorite photo that I took from the event was this one …

Geronimo on the USA flag and a great warrior dancer.
