Day 107 Friendship

I took this one Friday night at Danielle's dance recital. Our young people who are high school age, have a lot to deal with in this world. The arts are a good outlet for expression. This is evident in the music and choreography they choose. Danielle, and her best friend, Alissa, put this duet together to the song, "Hazy". I had never heard it before. It was very emotional and they were close to tears at the end here....

" What if I fall and hurt myself,

Would you know how to fix me?

What if I went and lost myself?

Would you know where to find me?

If I forget who I am,

Will you please remind me?

Cause, without you, things go hazy."


Lately, I have wanted to catch more of the real feelings in my photos. It was easy to do at the dance recital. I used my 85 mm for all of the close ups on the second night, so I had to turn the camera to get both girls in here, but I think the slope makes it even more dramatic.

  2. Wonderful capture. I've want to capture more of my life, like a real journal, for me and my family. I finally settled on another blog with just family, friends, people that come in and out of my life. I love this photo Karren. Follow your heart.
