Imagine dancers zipping about above street level and that's what happened over a two week period outside the Cadillac Hotel. Just like music has had power since the beginnings of human history, so has movement and dance.
What happened above the street that day was an aerial performance titled "Tender", by Flyaway Productions. As always, I was there with my camera, not to document the event for Flyaway Productions, but for Kathy who hosts the concerts at the Cadillac Hotel. "Tender" describes Kathy to a "t". She's kind and giving, and cares deeply for the people who live at the Cadillac Hotel. The final dance set -- there were three -- was named and dedicated to her.
I used the Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 lens exclusively and shot wide open at f/2.8. I set the shutter speed to auto since it was bright outside and the shutter speed never dropped below 1/1000sec. The 50-140mm lens has the equivalent field of view of a 70-200mm lens on a full frame camera. Shots were taken over two days.
Normally, I comment about each photo, but in this instance I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Hopefully you'll see the story unfolding in the photos and come to the end of this blog entry with as much awe and respect for the work that went into this production as everyone who witnessed it did.
