Movement

From moving traffic (taken from the middle of the Champs Elysees), to the arrival of the nautch at a wedding in a remote Rajasthan village , and culminating with a couple of fiery  representations of movement I didn’t show you when I posted Rhythm of the Perahera just last month, my entries this week are a stylistic hodgepodge.   Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy!

I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone else’s Movement shots – especially the dance entries.

    • Thanks Ella! I suppose, ever since our ancestors first harnessed the flame for warmth and cooking, the terror fire once engendered has become a source of inspiration and introspection. The fire baskets – and their masked and hooded carriers, have always fascinated me, and I was overjoyed to at last capture a basket bursting with flames.

        • Oooh – You put the wind up me there for a while, Louise – enough to have me scurrying to Google!

          Lyon, it must be said, is now among 30 cities worldwide to adopt the nickname City of Light – on the back of a five year old Festival of Light (held over three nights from 8 December), and an urban illumination scheme which is now under review in light (sic) of ecological concerns.

          Paris, on the other hand has many names. According to Wikipedia, (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris) “Paris has many nicknames, but its most famous is “La Ville-Lumière” (“The City of Light”), a name it owes first to its fame as a centre of education and ideas … – basically it’s been called the city of light since the 18th century.

          So we’re both right! I didn’t know about Lyon, and I suppose you didn’t know about Paris – so we’ve both learned something new as well. Good result I’d say, wouldn’t you?
