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.

Weekly Photo Challenge – From All Angles

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!

    • Chacchoben needs more excavation but they are short on money. They’re giving the tours to gain financing.
      There’s a great deal of history in these ruins including the discovery of some herbal medications.
      The dancers at the end were a nice touch. They danced for the tourists for free – just gratuities. Their smiles
      were priceless. I’m so pleased I decided to photograph them.I was so tired that I just wanted to sit. Then, my camera
      screamed … TAKE PHOTOS !!!! LOL Thanks, Gilly. 😎

    • Dear aFrank,
      Thank you for pointing that out to me. I’ve often wondered why my comments and likes on my photo blog are low. I think it’s because my writing blog url and image pop up in my return comments. I’ve tried to correct that with WP but it’s been slow going. Just wondering if the sidebar image didn’t help notice my photog blog? I wanted to keep the blogs separate. I wonder if that was a good idea. 😳
      Anywho … its was a fabulous day in Costa Maya. The dancers preformed for tips. Can you believe that …!!!???
      Thanks, again …
