Traditional Mexican Dancers From Every Angle
On a Norwegian Epic cruise in 2010, Costa Maya was one of the ports we visited.
We took a 6 hour bus ride and tour of the Chaccoben Mayan Ruins. The video at the end
of my photos was taken by the cruise line. It showcases the history and the tour we experienced.
Upon our return, we were given the opportunity to shop and rest while enjoying a cold beverage.
While sitting in the plaza these traditional Mexican dancers put on a show for us.
It was extremely hot but with our cold beverages we enjoyed their every movement.
All of the costumes were very colorful. The beautiful lady below was wearing white because she was representing a bride.
The dance is a traditional wedding dance in which the couple unite a ribbon with their feet.

This week – Shane Francescut – has challenged us
to create a series of photographs – From Every Angle
to join in click here.
Here are a few tips to help you alter your photographic composition:
• Photograph a person by beginning from their left side and slowly moving around to their right. Always have them either look directly at you, or ask them to focus on a spot on the wall as you move.
• Take wide angle shots and tight shots.
Photograph a plate of food from slightly above, from directly above, or making sure that part of the plate is cut out of the frame.
• Photograph your child by getting down to his or her level or by standing just out of their reach as they swing on a swing.
Enjoy the process!
