I Heart Faces: Red

This week's challenge at I Heart Faces is Red.  I had a few pictures I really liked that could fall into this category, but finally decided on this:

These are some kids dressed up in traditional Moldovan attire getting ready to perform some traditional dances at Ziua Orheiului, or "Orhei Day."  I love the delicate hand embroidery on their shirts and the bright red sashes that the boys wear.  Every city or village celebrates the anniversary of its founding with traditional music and dancing, and Orhei's celebration was especially impressive, in spite of it being much colder outside than the kids' light tops would suggest.


  1. What I love most about your shot is that it is so natural & multi-cultural. Plus the little girl on the right looks like she's sharing a secret. Love it!

  2. So natural - love the abundance of light!


  3. What a unique picture! I love seeing new and different tins around blog land!

  4. Beautiful outfits! Love how you've captured both the beautiful clothes and so many different facial expressions.
