Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

This image is of a fertility deity of Native Americans from the Southwest. It is represented by this humpbacked flute player representing childbirth and agriculture. Many stories and myths surround the power and role Kokopelli plays in the lives of tribes like the Hopi, Zuni, and Pueblo. The first images appeared in Hohokam pottery and can be traced back to between 750-850 CE. This ikon was found in a Trading Post on the Navajo Reservation near the Grand Canyon, Arizona

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
