At first I thought the ballet was taking place in a boxing ring.

i love the two shots even if they don't tell me the same story , they both are great, balance is what they have in common !

Very nice. Indeed the surfer is a dancer too.

That second picture was a winner - but I wouldn't dare...

PS I would recommend Knut Hamsun - probably the greatest Norwegian novelist ever (Nobel Laureate too). And easier to find.

Two very different images. One serene and one so lively. You really captured the momentum of the surfer.

Bibi said...

Two different interpretations of 'ballet.' Very good!

I indentify more with the second shot, but I doubt whether my style on a board would have been that graceful! Great shot.

A very nice fusion of concepts.

I like the outside in shot. The brighter light inside is a special touch.
