Color Coordination

Still in University City's Delmar Loop. This self-consciously dressed young woman (check out the shades and Chanel tee shirt) watched the drum circle (see May 23 post) for a time, then got up and began to slowly dance in the center. There was a disconnect here: white fashionista and black drummers, many of whom wore African fabrics. Her dance did not approach the energy of the drummers; She seemed to be in a different, languid time scale. The drummers did not pay her much attention, but weren't hostile. Almost anything goes in the Loop.

I guess she just wanted to dance. Nice photo.

Maybe she felt like the lady in the movie Dirty Dancing. She looks neat. But the step looks odd for the drums.

Well, bravo for her courage and effort. Fashionista indeed!!

There will be a Sunnyside Strawberry Festival this weekend on 46th Street.

I will be there with my camera. :-)

Ming - I REALLY wish I could attend the strawberry festival in my old neighborhood but where could they grow strawberries in Sunnyside? In the back yards and common areas of Sunnyside Gardens (which you should post something about - it has an interesting architectural history)?

I'll be in Chicago the weekend after this one, visiting my son, U "R" Us. We'll be out together with our cameras. Maybe I can contribute to the Chicago blog.

"Look at me!" "Look at me!" "Look at me!"

To me, she screams pretentiousness.

It sounds to me like you are the self-conscious one...? The drum circle is a diverse place, the drummers appreciate dancers. They love that other people are getting into the beat, no matter what they look like. You should try dancing yourself instead of criticizing the way people dress and dance.
