From Poles to Trolls - And Some Other Things As Well - Balboa Park Sunday May 2

It was the House of Poland's turn to host the Lawn Program at the International Houses in Balboa Park on Sunday May 2nd. I managed to get a few shots of the folk dancers.

After watching the dancing for a bit I stopped in to the House of Norway to see what sort of tasty snacks the Vikings were offering. This time it was little waffle-like things with some berry preserves and cream. I'm sure they have an actual name, and I'm equally sure I have no idea what it is. In any event, they were good.

They also have a cool collection of trolls sitting on a table just waiting to be photographed.

I spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around the Park. Along the way I met an aspiring young portrait photographer. We talked for a bit, and I let her take my photo for her class project. It was nice to see a young person shooting slide film, especially with an old totally manual camera.

Later I stopped and listened to Mitch, the didgeridoo player who is generally in the Park on weekends.

  1. These are great photos Frank. That is the best portrait of the didgeridoo player I've ever seen.
