Dance

“To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful… This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking”Agnes De Mille “Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”Friedrich Nietzsche “In a society that worships love, freedom, and beauty, dance is sacred. It is a prayer for the future, a remembrance of the past and a joyful exclamation of thanks for the present.” Amelia Atwater-Rhodes “One step, two steps, three steps; like winds of time experience joy of centuries, when movements…

South Shields Food Fair ~ May 2018

Sophie and I love a good food fair, most of the stalls have free tasters which we take advantage of whenever possible, we buy stuff you can’t really get in Tesco’s and have a cool lunch from one of the stalls.  I love to unleash the camera on some unsuspecting people for a change too. Back in May, we went to the one at Bent’s Park on the seafront and were not disappointed with the wares available.                   That’ll do for part 1 I think, don’t want you falling asleep. Stay tooned…
