The Furr Ball was everything it was chalked up to be. Kind of like a small slice of the playa transported into the unlikely location of Gold River, which is a small borough in Rancho Cordova. There were fire performers, mutant vehicles, lots of art and a couple of hundred people dressed up in their playa finest.
The theme was fun fur and Roger Rabbit, so there were plenty of outrageous costumes moving to the music of a half dozen DJs.
I set up a pair of strobes off in the corner and planned to take a bunch of portraits. Unfortunately, there was so much going on outside many of the patrons never made it inside or failed to notice I was set up if they had.
Due to this detriment I was able to get outside and run around and I actually took some of the first fire performance shots I have taken in probably two years. Yes, I know it’s hard to believe. I was supposed to go to Fire Drums VII this weekend, but due to my current situation with opening the studio I decided to bow out.
As I said last year, there’s always next year. Maybe not!
