The Venice Drumming Circle

prayer for the new years

Shot from the Venice drumming circle, a weekly groove-on-the-sand where humanity of all stripes come to throw-down. No visit to Southern California is complete without seeing this remnant of the hippy era infused by Latino and Afro-Caribbean traditions.

The Venice Drumming Circle can be found on the sands roughly in the middle of the commercial boardwalk strip of Venice.

But try and keep the cameras down to a minimum, local custom frowns on buzz-kill individuals who get in the faces of the dancers or drummers. Try a telephoto lens. Sunday afternoons are generally when the critical mass develops on the sand for the big dance that celebrates the end of the weekend as the sun sets.

Check out this video from the same evening as my picture was taken.
