Jammin in Old Havana
If only you had moved a bit more to the right so as not to have the head obscure the space to the left of the dancer. As if I were standing there in person, I want to shift my position in order to get a better view.
I love the story it tells - the colors, the action - great photo!
Perhaps just to the right is an ugly powerline... perhaps if the photographer had moved from behind the protection of the person in front of him, the dancer would have noticed the camera and stopped. You don't know the circumstances, Abby. This is not constructive criticism, it's just criticism.
FANTASTIC photo! I love the out-of-focus head in the foreground. It gives perspective and increases the depth. Check out Alex Webb..one of my favorite Magnum photographers
This is street life! Heads, wires, whatnots. What matters is the capturing of the instant. Wanna-bees are not invited!
Love this photo...you get a five!
This one takes all six senses for a joy ride.
There is something about raw rhythm that grabs your being and takes you to places you can only know if you play congas. I play 'em and not too badly I might add! I've played in scenes such as this. And sometimes they'll let complete strangers sit it--which is taking a chance! You join, you play--and if you play well--you've got instant new friends!
If Abby had been in there doin' a dance and feelin' the freedom of expression that she no doubt would--if she let herself go--you'd never hear a peep from her!
