16th annual Tango By The Fountain

One of the events in downtown Olympia that I have been looking forward to attending since we moved here in April of 2012 is the annual Tango By The Fountain.  We missed it last year when I was over on the Palouse and in northern Idaho visiting friends and family, but we did make it this year, and even though I was told that it was not nearly as well attended this year, I still thought it was a lot of fun to photograph.

Olympia has one of those flat concrete slabs that also happens to be a fountain with flush mounted water jets.  During the summer months it is a very popular place for kids to play in the water to keep cool.  For this one night a year it also becomes a dance floor for local dancers.  Some dancers simply dance around the edges while other venture right into the heart of the fountain.

I had a lot of fun meeting up with a lot of local photographers to shoot this annual event and really look forward to doing it again next year.  I hope you enjoy the images I posted here and as always please click on any of them to see larger versions.
