Las Fiestas: A Twinkle and a Flash

. . . And the Fiestas continue!

As promised, this is part two of our Kermés series. Make sure to click back to our last entry to check out the daytime look at these community church parties.

As nighttime covers the land and the church bells call out to the moon, visitors trickle in one by one, until the road to the next taco stand or game booth becomes an obstacle course.

Fair rides light up and swirl in the night haze of dust and remnant heat,
Children run between legs and around lawn chairs, tagging and chasing  one another,
Teenagers dress in their chic best, hoping to catch some cutie’s eye,
And the band plays on
just as loud for those who listen as for those who don’t.

This is the San Lorenzo Kermés Part Dos.
This is a twinkle and a flash.
This is a peek at life.

About rayaguirre3

I grew up in San Elizario, a few miles outside of El Paso, Texas. My affair with photography started with the disposable cameras I'd carry everywhere. As the years went by and the cameras got bigger, I became known as the guy with the lens in people's faces. Photography is known to be the art of capturing the moment. I love to be the one who seeks that moment out. Much like life and love, photography is based on perspective. My aim is to provide a new one.
