A very beautiful Brazilian Samba Dancer. I was spellbound as were at least three others.

Somehow this image is very Melbourne. An Asian, European and African watching a South American dance.

A big mix of cultures and they all get on

    Great capture Andy! Nice how you captured the reactions in the window.

  • Thanks Draven. I thought I would put the guys in to make it more of a shot of the situation.

    Ive got some color shots of her that I will load up a bit later. She was so beautiful, Brazillian’s have a lot of style.

    She is stunning, but the three guys in the window really complete the capture!! Nice work!!

  • Thanks Tatum.

    Its strange how color and B & W work. With the guys to add the story B and W is far more effective.

    The pic was taken at a Latin American Festival in Melbourne that was just great.

    I just assumed that this was a Brazilian picture until I read the caption. A great shot with the spectators included. Our ‘rainbow nation’ is mostly African and European with much less Asians. Faul

  • Hi Faul here is all sorts of nationality. Indian Japanese, Chinese, German Iranian, Dutch, etc

    For some reason it seems to work here. There is no racial tension here or at least minimal.

    Multiculturalism really works here i don’t know why. Maybe because individual groups are very small.

    Congratulations on your feature in Candid Photography Group… Great catch! The guys in the window make the whole shot!

  • Thanks Jeff its always nice to be featured.

    She was so lovely and that includes her personality everyone was spellbound.

    I could see the audience and was wondering how I could include the interest. I was really happy with this.
