Aztek Dancers, circa 1991

These are a few of my favorite images. These dancers performed in Balboa Park around when I was going to college in San Diego. I like these images because of the subject matter and the intricate details of their costumes.  I also like the way the sun was setting low at the time that gave the dancers an amber glow.  Shadows have a strong presence which gave the dancers definition and form.   The colors are more vivid in this type of lighting and draws out the rich gold tones of their skin and headgear.  Late afternoon when the sun starts its decent to the horizon, is one of my best times to photograph.
