Capoeira

Lets take a rest from the christmas talk..quite frankly, I'm bored of my own photos lately, so bare with me. Hope you don't mind that I dug up this one from the archive taken in Sep.
These guys were demonstrating capoeira , a relatively new sports for us, i think. If not for the sumersaults and acrobatic moves, I would be signing up for the class..see a demo. clip here (scroll down), you may be interested ? Psst...that guy with long hair was sleek, really wowed us ;)

This was fascinating. I never heard of the martial arts called capoeira. It really looks beautiful but exhausting.

OK this is weird. Are there two different photos combined here? Or did you desaturate part of the audience? Well done however you did it. Love the action.

first saw that sport in one of my nephew's playstation games, lol. and the guy there had long braided hair, too!!
nice idea about desaturating the audience, Kris!

Never heard before and you're right, the guy with long hair was sleek :)
I like the way you put 'Szentes daily photo' Very clever.

Jazzy said...

i also like the way you placed SDP.

Mmm, glad Tanty caught the Szentes daily photo! I missed that. Very cool. I like this action shot, and I appreciate the reprieve from Christmas photos too (even though I posted another one today).

Kris said...

Moving to the rhythm, frozen in the air, like notes in a pentagram. Great shot.
