It seems inconsistent that in some Middle Eastern cultures women must be covered up, except when they are dancing.

Hmmm. Maybe that is not so inconsistent after all.

Dance of the seven veils?
Was this veil #4 or #5? Looking forward to the next episode...

She is perfectly focused in the center of that amethyst mist... Bravo!

Nice capture. Isn't she a little skinny to be a Middle Eastern dancer?

Wayne said...

A great capture V.

@ Clueless in Boston - I was thinking the same thing. Belly dancer with no belly?
Mind you, it IS the South....

That is one fine photograph. Color, movement, composition, an exotic quality - it's got it all.

Paula said...

They always look so comfortable and pleased with themselves.

Bibi said...

Beautiful. My favorite color, too. I am wondering why her belly is not bare...American modesty?

JM said...

How beautiful! Fantastic capture, V. The title is perfect.
