Waltz

Tomorrow she will have danced 12 performances in 10 days. Next weekend 4 more & then time to rest.
What a privilege for me .....last year she performed with the Atlanta Ballet...no pictures allowed ( guess something to do with their union contracts). But this year I have been fortunate to volunteer backstage & take pictures until my heart is content!!
I love it...not only are the costumes exquisite but ballerinas are so beautiful to photograph. Since I'm not allowed to use my flash during the show I can't exactly capture the "in the wings" shots that I love....the silhouette of the sugarplum fairy as she waits to make her dramatic entrance....well , one day.
But for now I treasure these shots & the priceless time with my sweet girl.

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
