The Joy of Dancing

I convert my original color photos to a pseudo "infrared" version... and the photo set from the 02/08/14 contra dance shares a pics that speaks to the multiple levels of joy experienced while dancing.

This picture symbolizes the juxtaposition between social dancing, the joy of a dancing partner, and the self rapture of the dancer.  The self rapture is the most personal and most intense joy of them all.


All of the black and white pics can be found here.  The color pics from the same night are here, here and here.
