I’m bringing this photo back for a reprise on my blog for Rock the Shot’s Dancing challenge. This is one of my favorite photos that I made in Paris, studying street photography under Peter Turnley, former photojournalist for Newsweek and street photographer in New York and Paris. We were given an hour in front of the Louvre, and as I walked around, a visiting ballet dancer began leaping in front of the line. One of the things Peter told us, as he was advised by one of his mentors, was, “If you keep your head up, and your heart and eyes open, there is a gift waiting for you at the corner of every street.” Truly, what a gift!
