A Night of Drumming and Dance

The San Jose Taiko, from San Jose, celebrated its 40th anniversary this year.

Last night, the Husband and I had the pleasure to watch the stage come alive at the San Benito High School Auditorium with joyful precision Japanese Taiko drumming by the San Jose Taiko and African, jazz, modern, and hip-hop inspired-dancing performed by the Dimensions Dance Theater. The duo bill was presented by the San Benito County Arts Council, as part of its fundraising efforts for the Artists in the Schools Program.

Here are some links to learn more about last night's performers and the San Benito County Arts Council:

The Dimensions Dance Theater, based in Oakland, is one of
the oldest African-American dance troupes in the United States.

Main Street Reflection

I like taking photos of window displays, partly to see what reflections may show in the photos. It's always a surprise for me. And, I usually find something I've never noticed about familiar scenes. For instance,  the red awnings on the second floor of the buildings across the street from the Blak Sage Gallery on San Benito Street.

Happy Hollister

How about a game of finding not-hidden things in a photo? Can you see: 
  • 2 lamp posts with hanging baskets of flowers
  • a very cool vintage truck
  • a driver getting in (or out) of her car, possibly going to (or coming from) Country Rose Cafe
  • 2 benches
  • South Street sign
