Photos From Our Festival Visitors: Flickr Gallery #8

Photo by smata2

Today we bring you our 8th fabulous Flickr gallery of the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Take a look!

We’ve got just two more daily galleries left to go. If you’ve been thinking about adding your images to our Flickr group, now’s the time! Photographers selected for the final Best of the Festival Gallery will receive free Festival merchandise in acknowledgement of their contributions.

You can upload and share your own images to the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival Flickr Group here. We pick a few of our favorite visitor photos or videos every day, and take them to a wider audience by featuring them on our Festival blog.

Twitter users, follow our Flickr Top Ten galleries with #FlickrTopTen and follow the Festival with #2012Folklife.

Returning this year to moderate the Flickr Group and select the galleries is Ariel Fielding, a former Folklife Festival Fellow in Community and Online Engagement. A lifelong photographer, Ariel built her first pinhole camera at the age of six, and learned to use a darkroom at the same age. She works as a performing arts producer in Toronto.
