those are some really great pictures!

This is so beautiful @zipporah! I love the very last photo here the most; it's just brilliant! Here in Playa del Carmen, MX, there are always traditional Mayan dancers posing for photos with tourists (seems sad to me really), they are dressed very similar to this but with painted faces, arms and legs as well. I was speaking to one of them and he said it takes hours to prep it all.

Thanks again for sharing these :)

That's an amazing costume! I can just imagine all the work that went into putting that together.

Nothing follows. Just Wow!!!

Her costume — and your photos! — are magnificent! What wonderful captures you've gotten against that splendid sunrise on the playa! That first shot, especially, is awesome because the feathers look like they are on fire with the light streaming through them! Such exquisite photos! Bravo! 💖
