last night was BRILLIANT! i love a new challenge (taking pictures of quickly moving dancers took a while to warm up to), i love meeting new people, and the ballet enraptures me. i hope some of these photos inspire you to make it for a performance of ‘3 by dove‘ (tickets are 20% off right now!). i’m definitely more drawn to modern type dances (as opposed to the more traditional) but how can you not be in awe of the athleticism and grace of the performers? i always leave the ballet with a similar feeling to seeing live music- i love that people create art, and share it. please enjoy all the pictures, i had a hard time editing. ┬áthis is a record for most photos posted at once… and let me know if you’re attending the backstage pass event, i’ll be there with my camera!

also, be sure to become a fan of PNB on facebook, and you can follow them on twitter too!

i was shooting so fast, i didn’t really get to enjoy, it was great seeing shots like this when i got home…

if i could muster up some ballet lingo from, oh… 20 zillion years ago, i’d say… pas de deux?

the next set warm up… it wasn’t perceptable where i was sitting, but i loved seeing the ‘stitching’ on the costumes when i got these home. sadly, after 500 pictures, this is where my camera died. note to self, buy back-up battery!

    Lovely! The photos turned out amazing — I agree, a moving object is so very tricky to photograph! Beautiful, as always, though!!
