19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Fire Hoop

Scene: Mash Bash production/performance at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. A woman appears at the beginning and end of the show using fire in her act. The hula hoop (fire at points on the hoop) was a uniquely American toy, if you will, from decades ago. Her skill with it, in her brief segment, became a point of attraction for the camera.
