Chicas

.
One of the things I enjoyed the most about about the Cinco de Mayo festivities was this group of young ladies from St. Cecelia's parish school in the neighborhood. They all wore traditional Mexican dress-up clothing and danced through the streets as part of the parade. I was lucky to find them hanging out on a corner when the parade was forming up. I walked over to them, gestured with my camera and said, "Señoritas - ¿permiso?" They thought it was pretty funny.

I've added a lot more photos to this set on Flickr here.

TOMORROW: that doesn't sound like La Cucuracha.

I did a similar scenario in Paris! It worked every time.
Nice shots of the festival today B. You and I are eerily on the same wavelength with the skirts!

You seem to have a real feel for dancers. The swirling skirts and their bright colors are a delight.
