Cities at night are akin to foreign lands, as I leave the quite luxuries of my hotel room to explore the life of Denver. My night off, a quite bar, some time to clear my thoughts, a small piece of American history- the pictures are as necessary to me as my time alone, my cold beer, and the knowledge that not all has changed in the West.
Do you find yourself most often shooting photographs that you set out to capture? Or do you often come across something of interest, unexpectedly, camera in hand, and come away with great images?
These images are from a church in one of the older districts of Alamosa, Colorado and are very much a product of the latter of these two philosophies, I was just looking for a good cup of coffee!
The Southern Ute Drum offers extensive coverage of some of the prominent ceremonies in the area. The Powwow circuit will take us as far north as Denver, Colorado for the Denver March, and then south again for the Gathering of Nations Powwow in New Mexico. Regional Powwows include Hozoni Days and Ignacio’s own Tribal Fair. Keep an eye on the SOUTHERN UTE DRUM NEWSPAPER for more coverage in the weeks to come. This photograph of a young dancer in full regalia was taken recently at the Sweetheart Powwow here in Ignacio, Colorado.
