Praise him with the dance...Psalms 150: 4

This is my third effort for this challenge and decided to use myself as a guinea pig this time...I used a very slow shutter speed with manual focus on this self timer. In reality I am a klutz with two left feet when it comes to dancing and falling on you notice I am now wearing an Ace band aide on my sprained wrist.

    I love that you have a young spirit, that let you try whatever it takes to make the shot.

    Thank you for your kind words, and faves...Yes, James I really have to smile also as I think
    most everyone who has commented so far here is from my generation when the only hip hop that we did was Rock and Roll in the 50's and 60's...I am sure if I did the modern hip- hop of today I would end up breaking a hip:) I wasn't even good at Rock and Roll when I was young, because I was too shy to assert myself. Susan, I think my wrist is improving but just have to be careful that I don't tug or pull anything with it yet...Donna, I was surprised at the movement of the hands, but the shutter speed was very slow and I might have also accidentally moved too thinking the time was up...but it worked well for this kind of shot. Rocio, thank you so much for that compliment....I think JPG is instrumental in keeping my spirit young ...God bless you all and may you always keep your enthusiasm for the arts.
