These are the JPEG versions. More photos in this gallery but IMO the selected RAW images are better. I may eventually take this gallery down to save some space.
Taken on Saturday August 4, 2007 at the Getty Family Day. Only 1 of the 3 major groups is presented here due to Getty security telling me I could not continue shooting. Just like the hundreds of photographers there my only intentions for shooting these was to share my photographic skills with my friends and those interested in photographic excellence. Thank you all for your understanding in this matter.
The Dance Group here is the Rangoli Dance Company performing "Punkyakoti", a folktale about a truthful cow and a tiger. Also you will see shots of the delightful Dragon Knights (on stilts).
Due to restrictions by Getty I am unable to make any of these photos for sale. Commercial use of these photos was never intended by me even though the Getty security people implied that I was and told me I could not continue shooting that day thus violating my right to free expression. Please respect Getty's rights to these. You are welcome to share (links) to the online versions of the photos but please do not print them or use them in any commercial way.
