The bullfight is just one of many events at this Portuguese festival. There are many people of Portuguese ancestry in the area where I live (including my wife!). They go out of their way to not advertise so that PETA type people don't come to protest. The whole event -- not just the bullfight -- is a cultural event that draws people from a large area.

We have many kinds of festivals in California. Many represent cultural/group/tribal identity reinforcement. In an era of social fragmentation, who am I to judge what others enjoy.

For me, photography is a means to open my mind and heart to other realities, including activities that I would not otherwise partake without the camera.

I am glad to posted this thread.

Celebrate diversity!
