Saturday night instant of dance of delight

Filed under: Panama — Philippe @ 11:45 pm

Deleitarse is to enjoy doing something. Then, one could say that it is a sum of seconds of delights. A sum of delightful instants.  It was a morming at 00:35am at the Casona in Panama. The light was very low and sort of redish, and a group of colombian rastas were dancing smoothly, drunk of beer and music beats. One was moving so slow that he could have been in a different time space. A sweet smile on his face. Closed eyes. Light like smoke. I put on ISO5000 and pressed. It took 1.6 sec at f/2.8 to get this pure moment where one was dissolving himself into happiness, leaving his shadow painted on the wall. Forever happy.

  1. You talk of happiness but I see this image as ghostly and frightening. The shadow of the dancing man feels like a tortured soul.
