Powwow Field Trip, September 7th 2013

Powwow Field Trip September 7th 2013

    Seven camera buffs attended the powwow at Parker's Maple Barn in Mason New Hampshire. Dick & Gale Kenyon, Norm & Dottie Hunt, Don Hardy & Joan Walker and Ray Grace. We had a great day for the weather as there was no rain. Sun was bright and harsh and there were a lot of shadows we had to contend with. The powwow was of reduced size as it didn't get advertised in the powwow schedule on time. 
  The leader of the powwow requested that we respect the Indian way and not photograph three spiritual dances so there are no pictures of the spiritual dances.  We did get a number of photograph of the Indians as they were very friendly and posed for us when asked. 
  Some of us had lunch at the Parkers and we all ordered breakfast and it was very good and a lot of it. Dick & Gale road with me (Ray) and on the way home we stopped for a Kodak moment of a 1923 Ford. Picture attached, caption by Gale "A pair of antiques"  LOL.
