This week Cee has us looking at hands & feet for her Black & White Photo Challenge. They are not usually something I focus on specifically so there weren’t too images available in the photo files and I had to make the most of what I had.
Without the signature red & yellow coloring it might be difficult to tell that these feet belong to Ronald McDonald, who put in an appearance at the American Lung Association Lung Force Walk in Oak Brook, Illinois.

Images captured at the American Indian Center 63rd Annual Chicago Powwow held in Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village in September. According to the program distributed at the event, the powwow is a celebration of intertribal Native American culture. Chicago is home to the third largest urban Native American population with over 140 tribal nations represented and the American Indian Center was founded in 1953.

Splendid costumes, heart-pounding music and friendly people all made for an awesome day at the powwow. I hope to share more images with you in upcoming posts.
Cee has picked the color Purple as the topic for this week’s Fun Foto Challenge and I’m ready!
Because purple is my favorite color, it was the first thing that caught my eye at the 63rd Annual American Indian Pow Wow in Busse Woods last weekend.
The ladies looked beautiful in their costumes.
This little sweetheart, just 2 years old, was making her debut in the dancing circle and seemed to be enjoying every moment.

If craft and tradition go hand-in-hand, then there certainly were some splendid examples of American Indian crafts at the 63rd Annual Chicago Pow Wow this month. The whole event was just something that I will never forget (one more thing to cross off my unintentional bucket list) but the costumes with their intricate beadwork, colors and flare were by far the most outstanding feature.
Although I was concentrating more on the portrait side of things that day, I thought these shots would fit the bill for Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge this week, the subject being Craft. I hope to share more of these images in the coming weeks.
