A noble gentleman

This gentleman was part of the Native American pow-wow that I attended in Taos, New Mexico.  We arrived early and I was lucky to get a good spot to shoot from, because once their Grand Entrance began it was suddenly elbow-to-elbow.  There must have been 200 folks dressed in their tribal gear and it was quite a sight. I highly recommend going to events like this.  It's obviously a great opportunity for photography but more importantly I think it is great to learn about the culture and experience it.  I am not one for the typical portrait shots - for some reason I haven't caught that bug yet.  But I certainly make exceptions when it comes to events like this!
