Fotoeins Friday: Berlin fall, one

(Autumn in Berlin, 1 of 4.)

I follow my friends, M and S, to the Tangoloft. Their time living in South America has allowed them to pursue their love of tango dancing. Having moved their family to Berlin, M and S are now able to “tango” more regularly; Berlin is host to one of the world’s largest tango communities outside Buenos Aires.

I tag along, but I can’t dance worth shit. But ideas flit through my mind; I’m fortunate I can sit back and capture what I see in various ways. The photograph above has an ethereal ghost-like quality I really like: here one moment, and gone the next. I can almost “feel” the eyes staring at me and into the camera.

In the summer of 2020, the Tangoloft location in Wedding/Gesundbrunnen closed because of the pandemic, and their inventory was sold off.

As follow-up to “colours of fall”, I made the photo above on 8 Oct 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 0.5-sec, f/4, ISO2000, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lsT.

Ballet BC season 32: Program 1 preview (2017)

I’m always interested and fascinated by movement, whether it’s mechanical, natural, or human. Must be why I can’t stop looking at the world through a lens …

I attended a preview of Ballet BC‘s first program for the new 2017-2018 season (season 32). Thanks to Ballet BC and Instameet Vancouver, registered participants were provided access to the venue to watch and photograph the preview performance. Season 32 Program 1 was held for open view to the public on three consecutive evenings: 2, 3, and 4 November.

Ballet BC season 30: Program 3 preview (2016)

I’ve learned over time to recognize key moments when special things are happening. I’ve been fortunate to arrive at situations where I’m swimming large and I’m intersecting spatial timelines with other people who’re immensely blessed with talent, who’ve trained long and hard, and who’ve shone brilliantly under the spotlight. Within that convergence, I see what it’s like, that shimmer of a blinding spark, a clear glimpse into a universe of creative expression. The rigours and precision of classic ballet are combined with the hypnotic rhythms of contemporary dance: something new is created, boundaries are pushed, and people’s eyes are opened to a brand new world under a different light.
