Last week on the 8th of March I wrote about the conchero dancers who "start" the Easter season. I SWORE I wasn't going to take any new photos since I have a zillion already and I didn't until I left the jardine. I went to get my mail and came out of the mail place and the back of this young dancer was right there - I HAD to photograph him, especially his belt.....notice the turtle shells and the animal skins - very cool. So, ok, I had that photo and I crossed the street and turned around to look and I just HAD to have a photo of him. So, I recrossed the street and asked if it was ok to take a photo and he said yes.............. I LOVE how he is sorta slouched against the wall but most of all, I love that he has a Fanta in his hand..........a little refreshment after all the dancing.
I wonder who is he? How old is he? Where is he from? Does he work or go to school? How long has he been dancing? Is it a family tradition? Instead I nod my head, say gracias and move on. But I think he is magnificent.............and hope his regal appearance depicts the life he will have.
