During our cruise stop in La Paz, Mexico a group of young Mexican dancers performed a number of regional dances. I was surprised to learn that many of these dances originated from the polka. The teen dancers and their attire were beautiful, they were obviously loving the excitement and flair of the dances, and the audience was enthralled.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
