Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

This man was leading a group of dancers in the Fourth of July parade. They were all wearing similar hats and were swinging those things around. Then they did their dance routine in the street with their clogging shoes making a great sound. I have a feeling this is associated with a particular country, perhaps, Switzerland.

    He is really dressed colorfully! Clogging is fun to watch! Some of the best cloggers are in the Smoky Mountain area!

    I have never heard of clog dancing, is it originally a Dutch dance? Great candid capture of this colourfully dressed man, Warren.

    COOL SHOT WELL SPOTTED. cloggin' where i live is a violent pass time in the 18/19century. They used to settle arguments by kicking the opponents shins while wearing CLOGS . but now there is only the CLOG DANCING
