Drum Circle

Late in the day, on a Sunday afternoon, I noticed a large crowd on the beach in Venice. Gus said it was the "Drum Circle." They meet every Sunday in the afternoon, start drumming together, and drum on into the evening. There must have been at least 200 people there - a large group of spectators, perhaps 30 drummers or more, and people dancing around inside the circle, and in the crowd. When I got close enough to take this photograph, the sound was truly deafening, but hearing so many drums in concert was amazing! I am told that you can hear them drumming into the night, from blocks and blocks away.
