Theme Thursday - Bodies

Hmm, this was a tough one.  Bodies?  I suppose one could think of the body of a car or an airplane, however I don't have any exciting pictures of either of those.  Yes, there's human bodies and animal bodies, but how to make them about bodies and not about the humans or the animals?  

Suffice it to say I couldn't figure it out, so I'm using pictures of bodies in a modern dance class that I took over the weekend.  Wait, let me rephrase that, I'm using the pictures I took over the weekend, not that I took a modern dance class over the weekend.  I would have liked to have taken the class because I really enjoy modern dance (as opposed to ballet, which I also had to take pictures of over the weekend - I am just not a fan of ballet), which is why I'm using those pictures for the bodies theme instead of the ballet ones.

Anyhow, here are my pictures of bodies in modern dance class doing amazing things:

That's my son in the white shirt and the shorts :)

Don't you wish you could bend like this:

Or this!  This is flexibility insanity!

 Can't do this either.

Nothing extreme about this one; I just like it.

Take your body on over to Clan Donaldson to see what others have come up with!

God Bless!


  1. OH, to have a dancers body. beautiful. graceful.

  2. I love that you find it difficult to make a picture of a human body NOT about the human. If that isn't a little catechism in and of itself, I don't know what is.

    And that first picture? Oy. I wish I were so flexible. Or strong.

  3. What great shots! The colors are so lovely. I have never been flexible at all, so I get such a kick (haha) over seeing what the body is capable of. Just beautiful.

  4. I love dance and dance photography. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

  5. Gorgeous. I wish I had that strength and flexibility!

  6. Wow, lovely pictures! What I would give to be half that flexible... God bless you!

  7. Wow, our bodies are amazing (with some discipline and devotion!)

  8. I love seeing your dancing kids! Beautiful dancing bodies.

  9. Wow..those pictures are amazing...not to mention what those bodies can do. I've never been flexible or graceful so I always really admire those who are.

  10. These are amazing...I especially love the last one. Thanks for sharing such lovely pictures!
