I have always loved people. Their faces, eyes, and body language can portray so much about what they are feeling at that moment. The following are pictures I took on various occasions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
This boy had been moving a small hand held fan back and forth on the glass. The sea otter followed it repeatedly wherever the boy moved it. This little girl was so amazed at the magic the boy used to make the otter go wherever he wanted. I loved her expression of wonder and respect.
This fire swallower was performing at a Renaissance Fair. He was quite funny and charming. He had the audience’s full attention here.
This potter at Old Salem, NC was demonstrating how his work was done in the sunlight coming through the window, since during colonial days, that was how it was done. I loved the expression on his face of focus, pride and dedication to his work.
I have always enjoyed the young dancers at Diwali Festivals. These young ladies were waiting their turn to perform and had just adjusted their jewelry and turned away.
I have long been fascinated by belly dancing. This performer was amazing in her balance, movements and skills.
This beautiful young lady was having her hair fixed by an older woman. I love the strength and confidence her face expresses and the loving pride in the mother’s(?) face as well. I have tried to find this woman to give her a copy of this because it is one of my favorites and I wish I could thank her.
My friend and I went to Boulder during a fall festival. We watched this performer do all kinds of contortions and then fire swallowing feats. While he rested in this position, I pointed to my camera asking if I could photograph him. He nodded and gave me the “look.” I don’t know what he was thinking but I sure would love to find out. LOL
People are fascinating!
