This has all the elements of a great DPC photo... clean & uncluttered background, great exposure and captured light, composition using RoT, and the masterful use of the fourth element... time & movement!

thank you!

John: this performance was actually accompanied by Rumi's poems and music. Very interesting experience!
Judy: yes, sort of a fez, but much taller than regular
Annie: indeed, it is supposed to be mesmerizing...especially for the dervish himself :)
Don: thanks for the fave!

A secret turning in us
makes the universe turn.
Head unaware of feet,
and feet head. Neither cares.
They keep turning.
-Rumi.

Wonderful Lev.

His arms look so misplaced somehow it's makes for a more interesting image
