Tiny Dancer

A Taste of the Caribbean festival was held yesterday at Riverfront Park in downtown Hartford.  It was very hot, so I didn't stay long.  But, I did stay long enough to catch dancers in bright skirts.

Very nice. Those swirling and colorful skirts look fabulous. And the young girl in the center looks lovely.

Jack said...

@Sharon, you're right. I changed it!

She seems to be lost.. into music, into her dreams , into the rythm?.. who knows? very colorful and pretty shot!

Sylvia K said...

I agree with Malyss, Jack! She does seem lost in the music, dreams, whatever, she does look immersed in them! What a delightful, colorful capture for the day!! I love the whirling skirts! Delightful! Hope you're weekend is going well! Ours is HOT, too!!

We have gone to the Galaguetza festival in Oaxaca, Mexico, which features several hours of dances in the sun. I can appreciate the challenge of photographing these dancers.

It's hot down here in the Caribbean, too.

Happy Sunday,
