My camera seems to have become an extension of my amateur photographer eyes! All photos prior to 2007 are scanned and were taken with a Fuji camera.

Festival de Cornouaille, Quimper, Finistère, France, 2010

Dancers of Ar Vro Vigoudenn (the Bigouden region of Western Brittany) dance to the music of Bagad Cap Caval (pipe band) at the 87th Quimper Celtic summer festival. Bagad Cap Caval, current champions of Brittany and 2nd grade World Champions can be listened to here. Ar Vro Vigoudenn dancing an ultra trad 'Plinn' Breton dance can be seen here.

Very colorful shot! I don't think I'd like the music, though; can't stand bagpipes.

I had to leave Qimper few days before festival started when I was there and never had chance to see it. Hope to be back at proper time one day! Love the photo and love the music you attached:)
By the way, they do speak Welsh in Corris of course!

J'adore les danses bretons. Elles sont mignones, ces petites bigoudenes !
