Festival of Nations

Festival of Nations 3

Late post today. Out shooting at this event most of yesterday, then a bit if shopping. Last night we attended a performance of Das Rheingold. Our little summer opera company is doing the whole Ring of The Niebelungen over four years. Someone prepared a "reduced" Ring cycle so the monumental series could be played in small venues. The man who sang Alberich was fabulous. Anyway, out pretty late.

St. Louis' annual Festival of Nations runs this weekend, sponsored by our International Institute. This is a surprisingly diverse region. Scores of countries were represented and the place was packed. A couple of quick edits for now. I'll try to get more edited later today.

Sounds like hectic times Bob! The top portrait shot is wonderful, great expression (and shark necklace) on second shot.

Fidel's little brother Miguel Castro wonders who that fellow is with the camera...

Beautiful portraits but the first is just right.
