Santo Domingo Annual Arts and Crafts Festival-#3

 I met these wonderful men at the Santo Domingo Pueblo on Labor Day week-end.  They were sitting at a table collecting money for Disabled Native American Veterans.  They were pleased that I felt honored to meet them, and I promised to send them photos after I returned home to Minnesota.  Unfortunately, my camera lens was dirty, and I had nothing with me to clean it.  I wish I could have taken more photos of them as a momento for  them and for me.

  3. The World War II vets have given way to the Vietnam vets, who will some day be superseded by the vets of the first Gulf War, then the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and, then . . . .

  5. Super portraiture, Kate! I was lucky and did not get called up for Vietnam but I did teach a unit on Vietnam every year and had vets come into the classroom and set up a firebase, along with all their gear. Good stuff.

    What I like about these shots is they show so well how we are all alike...no matter our ethnic background...there's only one race - the human race!

  6. Oh, I meant to say that yes, golf carts are the main method of transportation within The Villages. It gets pretty hairy at times. You can drive your golf cart on all the roads within The Villages except for the larger streets. Many people have "street-ready" carts, though, which allows them to drive on the larger streets.
