Out takes from THE event I look forward to shooting the most: “Flagging In The Park”. A semi-monthly summertime pic nic and aerobics workout for fan dancers, flaggers, hoopers, poi spinners, and any and all forms of “flow” artistry. Click on any of the pictures to see my gallery of over 341 flagtastic photos from the June 9th, 2013 fun raiser. More info and links below…
The event is held in the National Aids Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park, a spectacular meadow spread across the bottom of a small canyon, surrounded by redwoods and protected from the winds and the fog.
I like to think of it as a rave, except a slightly older, gayer crowd. Most of the attendees are veterans of the 80’s and 90’s club scene, when fanning and flagging played a prominent role.
The music was fantastic, this being my favorite track from an entire afternoon of delightful dance and house music from dj Steve Sherwood.
