Backstage at Chinese New Year of the Horse Celebration “Playing in the Rain” Interpretive Folk Dance. February 2, 2014
The little one holding her breath is the highlight of this picture above.
In photography, one has to be in the right place, wait and watch patiently to be rewarded with the burst of magic in everyday life.
8 year old Aniyah (below, center) came late to the dress rehearsal without make-up or braids because her mother was sick. I volunteered to tie her braids for her but find it hard because her hair was very smooth and shorter than what I am used to working with. As I was tying her hair, I suddenly saw that she was sobbing as quietly as she could to herself! I asked her why and she replied “you are pulling my hair…” As it was close to show time, another set of hands came over and help her with her other braid on the left side. There we were working quickly, gels, hair bands, make-up, and we had a determined child sobbing to herself without a single complain. I felt really bad for my inept backstage help until I saw her later emerged from her ordeal shining brightly with eagerness to dance.
No tears: the middle one.
