Final Performance

Posted by

Just turned 4 yr. old Kylie was at dance camp recently. This was at the final performance. I had no idea she had that kind of grace. (There is a room long mirror behind her.)

enchanting, beautiful fluidity of movement and the light is fantastic, the shimmering reflection in the fore ground is mesmerising. If this is`nt spotlighted I will eat my hat. great work.

@Adrian: I have given up on the Spotlight. This one certainly is more deserving than the ones of mine that have been selected. If anyone has a photograph of a youngster with that much grace who turned 4 earlier that week, I will tip my hat.
