Ruby Tuesday - Bali Comes to San Francisco - April 5, 2011

This past Sunday, my friend, Joanne Olivieri ( aka Poetic Shutterbug - check out her
fabulous photographic blog ) invited me to go to free day at San Francisco's excellent
Asian Museum.  Currently, they have a visiting Bali exhibit and, Surryea, a renowned
Balinese mask dancer, was going to perform, an added enticement.  It was a glorious
day, perhaps that was why the museum was not especially crowded as it normally
is on its one day a month when there is complimentary admission.

No flash photography is allowed inside the museum but their exhibits are reasonably
well illuminated so I have many posts for upcoming Ruby Tuesdays.  My shots of
Surryea are not quite as good but I wanted to post them for today.  He performed
three different dances with the masks which he makes himself. 

I am participating in Ruby Tuesday, a most wonderful meme.  Check out the
site to see other red photographs and add one of your own!
