The Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post this week is Motion and for this theme I’ve decided once again to use b/w images in order to put more emphasis on the topic rather than the colors. I’ve also tried to show just enough blur in the pictures to demonstrate motion without having the subject totally unrecognizable.
How I miss competing in this sport but advancing years, the loss of most of my fencing equipment in a flood and various medical issues have me thinking that this kind of motion is no longer in my picture. Now I can only stand on the sidelines at capture the moment on camera.
A little bit of fan-twirling going on here as one of the performers at the Japan Festival in Arlington Heights goes through the motions of a very graceful dance.
Continuing with the twirling theme, dancers with Ballet Folklorico throw all their energies into the performance; definitely motion with emotion.
