Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Dance ( Sky Dragon & Little Malaysian Indian Girls)   3 comments


There’s rhythm and motion all around us — this week, let’s capture some of it in a photo.

As for my Weekly Photo Challenge by Ben Huberman, I offer two entries of the Dances of the Sky Dragon & Little Malaysian Indian Girls :-

This is a night photograph which I had taken during the recent Chinese New Year Celebration in George Town, Penang. It showed a lighted Dragon “dancing among the clouds” by a local Dragon Dance Troupe made of youths of a martial arts association. The blurry head of the Dragon showed the mysterious creature of the heavens and the speed it moved.

Malaysia is a truly a multi-racial, multi-lingual, multi-religious and multi-cultural country so Penang is no exception. This dance troupe of Malaysian Indian girls is dancing an Indian Cultural Dance originated from India. Malaysia’s Tourism tag-line is ” Malaysia – Truly Asia ” – mainly Malays, Chinese, Indians, Dayaks, Ibans, Kadazans and many other races.

When I let my brain loose, allowing it to absorb what’s around me without trying to process anything in particular, what it often detects is choreography — unmistakable dance moves, often in unexpected places.

It can be the organized chaos of a subway platform at rush hour, with hundreds of people making their way in and out of trains without missing a beat. Sometimes it’s a team of cooks frenetically at work in a restaurant’s open kitchen, or a flock of puffins swimming in tandem with the precision of a corps de ballet.

Or it can be palm trees in the California desert, swaying and rustling on a recent afternoon after a surprise storm shook them out of their midday stupor.

Photo – not included

In this week’s challenge, share a photo of something that appears like dance to you — whether you choose to focus on objects, animals, or people (actually dancing, or not), try to capture the rhythm in their movement.

I look forward to seeing your photos!
