Weekly Travel Themes: Noise

Vince and I come to Avila Beach in Central California to escape the quiet tranquility of our country home in the hot Central Valley.

At the Friday night street fair this band attracts a crowd.  Nobody could resist  “Sweet Home Alabama,” no matter what their age.

Street Fair2

People moved out of the way to let this couple dance.

Street fair6They didn’t inhibit others from doing something different.

Street fair4

Vince noticed the mature gypsy queen.  I tried to get close to her, but people kept crowding in between us as they danced their way across the street.

Street fair7

First one and then another, and my camera has a bit of a delay.  So I would get her all lined up , snap the picture, someone walked in front of me, and click, the shutter opened.   The results were interesting at times.

Street fair8

Sometimes they were downright laughable, but it was so noisy that you couldn’t hear yourself laugh.

Street fair5

I can’t hear her, can you?  I hope you enjoyed the music we heard at the Avila Street Fair last Friday night.  Tomorrow’s Friday.  Want to go?

  1. Love her jewelry! Love that song! I love someone who lives by the motto, it’s better to be ridiculous than boring. In her case, she succeeds in being immensely interesting. I’ll bet she’s got stories to tell. 😀

    I also like the way you’ve opened your essay. Nice reversal.

    1. I admit it. I’m too lazy to carry it with me everywhere, and when I’m traveling a long distance, it’s a lot of extra baggage to pack. So sometimes, I don’t use it, and just stick to my phone, but I get some weird shots that way. 🙂
