PhotoHunt: Painted


This week's theme is "Painted."

This week was tough because I have so many photos that would work for this theme. I ended up choosing some recent shots of a community art project at Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance where people were putting their painted umbrellas on this bamboo dome. It looked pretty cool.



And a couple more from the same festival:



You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
