fold


Header Challenge: fold

May 6, 2013

Katney picked "fold" for today's challenge. I was afraid it would be tricky, but once I started looking, I found it wasn't too hard to find good folds to use. Check out my  pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing  Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.

This week I picked African headwraps from Sierra Leone for my header.  It's like one long satin scarf that they wind and fold to create a distinguished and ornate, flower-like flare to their attire.  I do not remember the women's exact title, but these ladies were like the "Aunties," or esteemed friends of the Mother-in-Law.  Trying to photograph a wedding from another culture can have its challenges, but I was honored that they asked me.

Yes, that's me on the left.  My good friend Sharon is on the right.

We have a friend in Sierra Leone.
He is from here (South Georgia)...is an RN, and lives and works in the villages.
It was such a pleasure to see the folds that you shared with us here, Craver!

The African headwraps are awesome folds. Ones I have not had an opportunity to experience.

Colorful and lively folds you found! In some cultures there is much more work involved in dressing up.

Nicely done Craver, what a neat head-dress.

Craver, is that you?!

I've been digging the Pale Ale at Indeed, although for a couple cents more you can get their beers infused, and the dark cherry infusion on some of the more ROBUST brewings are delightful.

Don't tell the cat. :-)
