I saw Royal Ballet and the Bolshoi Ballet on the same weekend in 1968 because my niece, Lisa, was studying at the Royal Ballet in London and got us tickets. I think every dancer stood on their tippy toes. So I asked Lisa, "why don't they just get taller dancers? If looks could kill, Lisa would have been a murderer.

I was reluctant to post this image but my wife likes it so here it is.
Sometimes one has the opportunity to capture a subject in less than ideal light.
This was one such case.
I usually pack up and head home once the sun gets too far over the horizon as the light becomes very blue and contrasty to me.
However this day a little chap was busy warning other suiters intent on winning the attention of his mate.
I had to record it and was rewarded with this among other images...
