Rehearsing Company B (II)

Pictures from yesterday’s rehearsal at the Beijing Dance Academy. Rehearsals have now moved onto the stage.



Four Lions, the Bride, and the Groom

Which marks the end of the series. Some background… last Sunday, Shanshan and I had walked Leo to the nearby vet’s to get his coat shaved for the summertime. On the way back, we saw the musicians performing and the crowd building outside the restaurant. Since I didn’t have a camera with me (cellphone embedded or otherwise), Shanshan suggested that I go home and get one. And, also, that I bring along her mother –who was over visiting– since it was bound to be a fun occasion.

btw, the shots are with my D300, switching between 14 and 85 mm lenses.

Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, with One World Trade Center finally topped out, I’m sharing this picture I took of the first beam welded into place, which occurred on December 19, 2006. (I took the picture a few weeks later.)

Here is to the memory of those who died in service to our country.


Rehearsing Company B

Pictures from today’s rehearsal at the Beijing Dance Academy for an upcoming performance of the Paul Taylor Dance Company classic, Company B. Leading the rehearsal (and doing the staging of the ballet) is Richard Chen See.

The dancers are first and second year students at the academy.

It’s been quite a few years since I’ve done dance photography, something for which I’ve had a longstanding passion.

btw, I took over 500 shots to get these five; something that I totally expected before shooting the rehearsal.
