Such grace....and she is in the Ballet version of my favorite pose...
The boardwalk at Lake Anne :)  Wish you could see the fountain in the background.

I think this one would be nicer in B&W or toned down to sepia.

Holy crap that's one hell of a pose. Strength, grace and beauty all in one.

Her shoes are all muddy :3
But for good reason, these are beautiful shots.

Her poor, poor pointe shoes, all dirty and such :(. Great shot!

they got pretty trashed in that shoot. it was wet and there was some kind of mucky film on the ground that the pointe shoes soaked up.
Shutterbugcreations's avatar
At least they weren't her good pair, right?
HowNowVihao's avatar
they were already on their death bed. the girls i work with know that i have them kill shoes during their shoots. i had one girl where them into the pool :P

Isn't that a battement? Arabesques are close to the ground aren't they?
HowNowVihao's avatar
you mean a grand battement? no. this isn't a standard pose so i don't know if there's a name for it. the best i can describe it is that it's a 4th arabesque with the working leg bent like an attitude.
piercethepie's avatar
Oh okay. I would have described it as an attitude battement but I haven't been doing dance for very long.
HowNowVihao's avatar
somebody else described it as attitude derriere with arms in 2nd arabesque... i guess we can take our pick.
bubusaw's avatar
I would say it is an attitude derriere with arms in 2nd arabesque. She did it so well! nice pic!
HowNowVihao's avatar
i just checked with a ballet teacher... she said it's second arabesque with a leg bent into attitude. looks like we were both wrong.

She can stretch!
