A year ago,  I photographed this young lady in studio rehearsal.  Later, when showing a photo of her I liked,  she looked, winced and said “weak toe”.   Other than learning a few ballet terms,  I still don’t know how what is technically sound ballet.  The artist in me, the one that knows about color and composition and moment, forges on.  I finished posting performance galleries today and had time to go back to this, from last Wednesday .  Technically, its just in-bounds for an acceptable photograph.  Artistically, I think it borders on magic.
