Lucky you! You had the chance to see live-whirling dervish! I love his figure and siluet. I see the wonderfull circles, which are made from the dervish "dancing" in your photo - it means, that you feel them...Like that you also like dervishes. It's very beautiful, indeed. Greetings and thank you for everything!

You're right, I'm very lucky. This group doesn't perform that often, but they are local, and do perform.
On the other hand you can go watch Tanora, with the colourful costumes, (they are derived from the original whirling dervishes in white and are basically Egyptian folklore), they perform all the time, but for me it's not the same!

I like this shot; just the right amount of motion blur to show his movement :nod: Really love the lighting on the clothes :aww: There's quite a lot of noise but it's pretty hard to avoid on longer exposures.

very cool

the ratio of light and darkness..balck and white and the source of the light emerging from one end..
though i feel it's the dancer guy who's embracing the light..not the other way around

again very impressive shot

Great shot! Perfect timing as they usually spin too fast and the light makes the man like performing in the space.

doriano Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2008
Thanks! Yes, they do spin fast, and you have to press the shutter and hope for the best :-)
I think the only solution is to click away and eventually you'll have some good shots.
