culture

the arts and other manifestations of human
intellectual achievement regarded collectively

This young dance troupe gave us…

…a peek into their culture…

…via song and dance.

Similarly, so did these Maori dancers…

…in Rotorua,

New Zealand.

I happened to spot this harpist

setting up in Brugge.

What appeared to be tourists

were being lead her way.

Five minutes later not a sign of her.

Must be the shortest practice/busking

session ever.

 

I know I posted this image last week,

however, looking at again I could not help

but wonder if this bloke could practice

his pick up technique a bit more?

 

Even Lucerne’s famous Chapel Bridge,

which crosses the Reuss River is an ideal place

to hone one’s skills and perhaps glean

a few tourist dollars/euros in the process.

A Bourke Street, Melbourne, busker

 

What a way to practice one’s

Twister skills and…

 

…pay a bill or two at the same time.

I love this image.

The very young appreciating

the older generation’s skills.

Something not seen or heard very often

these days….unfortunately.

FriendlyFriday-Smiles

~~~~~

Not all big portrait smiles today,

however, all smiles or facial expressions

captured at an entertaining afternoon

at Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

 

The girl appears concerned,

the boys likewise.

 

Somewhere between a smile and

very concerned as he had just

gone through the floor.

 

A nervous smile, maybe.

I’m fairly certain I would have been

nervous had roles been reversed.

 

 

A little more relaxed now.

I wonder why?

 

 

He is putting her down and

she is still dry, that’s why.

 

With a smile like that you would have

to join him for a dance,

wouldn’t you?

That smile and those eyes…is she playing

hard to get?

 

He will just have to try

a more subtle approach.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Welcome

~~~~~

welcome

an instance or manner of greeting someone.

This dance troupe…

…could have been welcoming us to…

…South Africa and…

…Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

They were, in fact, bidding us farewell.

And so vigorous was their dancing that..

…one of the male dancers found

a weak spot in the decking.  🙂

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Raw-Emotion

~~~~~~

Is a loving emotion being demonstrated here?

Maggie taught young Taji so much in the few

short months before she passed away.

Where and how to sleep during her morning nap

was just one of those things.

However, Taji just had to stretch all that energy away.

Then across the ocean at Victoria Falls these dancers

were expressing their own energetic pride in

their performance.
