Twirling Poi

SDP  12-9-12
Last Sunday, I was near Siesta Key and decided to take a nice, quiet evening stroll along the beach. What I forgot is that every Sunday night there's a drum circle on Siesta beach.  I never make a point to go, but the couple of times I've stumbled across it I've had fun.  Along with beating drums and tambourines, and shaking maracas, some folks like to twirl neon lights at the end of a long string.  It's pretty cool to watch the neon in the darkness and one guy who was especially proficient at it was kind enough to tell me that lights on a string are known as poi.  This is a shot of two people (one with green lights and the other with red and blue lights) dazzling the drum circle was their poi moves.

Great catch! And here I thought poi was that stuff they served at Hawaii Luaus!

Well done! I was wondering as to what the word, "poi," meant...so thanks...I learned something today as well as got to look at a fantastic image!

For another shot in the dark, look at our Weebly blog: http://landlfotos.com/blog.
