This is from 2007, and it was a venue with very weird angles, but it was interesting to explore. Some of the dancers were on a little bridge across the top of the bar, while others were on stands around the bar. This was one of those. I was pretty much looking straight up her leg, but she was ok with it, and I got this picture with a lot of foreshortening and string flying everywhere. I like the violet background with the bold red strokes against the green costume.
