Beautifully taken image. I love your Northwest Native American shots, their art and culture are unique and you capture/convey it well. The fact that only those two subtle hands can tell us this isn't a museum mannequin art display make the image powerful, mysterious and secretive like the subject it represents.

Thanks for the comments Minnie. Here is the landing on Hollywood Beach in Port Angeles. I love the American Natives, they are a very kind people. I also enjoy paying homage to Edward Curtis.
They will be heading across the Strait of Juan de Fuca tomorrow morning to meet all our North West Tribes for a week of celebrations.

Best regards, Ernst

I remember in the late 80's to early 90's the art from the Pacific Northwest tribes (particularly those influenced by the Tlingit and Haida tribes) was very popular among tattoo collectors here on the East coast. I recall doing quite a number of whales and totems back in the day. Not so much nowadays as things tend to go in cycles and follow trends.

I am particularly captivated by the design on the young girl's blanket draped over her shoulders. It's definitely a commemorative ribbon design with a tribal influence.

I also find the juxtaposition of traditional water travel against the larger modern cruiseliner quite humorous.

Fabulous images, as usual. Thanks for showing us a little of the traditions on your end of the globe.

The grain in the image makes it timeless! Well done! S-
