Whatever the reasoning, be it not to completely crop out the dancer's extended right arm, the choice of keeping the quarter face in the bottom left of the photograph adds another layer of appreciation of 'bliss'.

Her quarter face feels juxtaposed as if she too is taking a photograph with her left, out of view, eye through lens of you taking a photograph of the scene.

I think I like this because the corner eye is in the depth of field focus as the dude is.

very nice matto.

Thank you for this image.

I am the blissfull woman dancing in this photo.
Through serendipity this picture made it's way
back to me and I am so happy for it.

I would like to share the back-story here.
A little over a week before that picture was taken I was told by my Dr's that there is NO MORE CANCER in my body. This after months of treatments for Hodgkin's Disease, some of which I am still in the process of completing to consolidate the cure.

I have spent much of the past year in seclusion as I healed, but I have been dancing all along as a way of keeping my strength both spritually and physically.

That day I had just been regaining my strength after receiving chemotherapy earlier in the week. The good vibes and amazing music really lifted my spirits.

I was so happy to be alive and to be out with so many beautful souls dancing in the park.

I remember it as a real turning point, the day my
energies started to return to me.

So thank you. I'm putting this picture in my journal. It is a gift.

Best Wishes
