"La Danse" by Anja Verdugo

These photographs from the Clever Nettle blog took my breath away. i love Everything about them: the mood and emotions of the models, the lighting, the clothes, and i'm especially taken with the ballet influence since i am obsessed with ballet (no, i haven't seen Black Swan). if you like ballet too, you should watch THIS (recommended to me by best friend Aanna). I think i took ballet when i was 3, but then i got into gymnastics and focused on that. I want so badly to learn the graceful and fluid steps of ballet. i am not going to let another year go by without taking lessons; its not too late! What is it that you have always wanted to learn, but haven't take the plunge yet?

  1. love this so much... I agree I want to go back and learn ballet!

  2. I cannot get enough of this photo shoot! The lighting, clothing, models...everything is just perfect.

    I've been a dancer my whole life, and I think it's something that everyone should at least try once. As for me, I have always wanted to learn to play the piano; I really need to figure out where I can take lessons.

  3. actually, I wanted to try ballet as a little girl, but lessons were too expensive(cue the violins!:)) I ended up taking piano which was more affordable, along with my brother. After a few years of painful lessons, my teacher said, "the boy, he should continue, the girl can quit if she wants")I was thrilled (and not surprised) to learn I didn't have any musical talent! but who knows I coul've been a great dancer, haha!

    I totally agree with you, this shoot is too beautiful!

  4. These pictures are so beautiful and inspiring. I also took ballet when I was super little, and have always wanted to keep pursuing it. It's one of the little dreams I hope to pursue one day.
