This year is the fifth anniversary of this blog. For the first year I was unsure about how many photos I could actually upload because of the free WordPress.com blogging account has a space limit. So I kept photo uploads limited to just my arts and crafts along with any photographs that I actually exhibited in a show. Over time I learned such things as graphic optimization so I was able to upload more photos that way than I thought I could. So for the rest of the year I’m going to devote Throwback Thursday to photos from previous blog entries (along with links to the original posts) that I should’ve uploaded five years earlier but I didn’t.

On July 3, 2010 I attended the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the Mall in Washington, DC for the first time in many years. The weather was warm with unusually low humidity for that time of the year. I wrote a post about it but here are the photos I took at that event that year. (That year the festival focused on Mexico and Asian-Pacific Americans.)
