Toe Shoe Tuesday - Rachel & Dakota
when the thought of working with two ballerinas crossed my mind, i didn't know what to do with myself. how would i incorporate them together? did i want them posed together as a unit, or two separate individuals within a scene? and what would i find around that would even allow them to be posed simultaneously without looking just plain awkward. well, here you have it! you saw Dakota last week, down on tower bridge, and once we rounded the corner, i saw this parking garage and just knew THIS was the place. Dakota and Rachel climbed up to the second floor, and held on with all their might. no, there wasn't a nice flat spot for them to pose on. just a small ledge that was just perfect for a pointe shoe box. i'll let you in on a secret. their arms aren't positioned there just by coincidence ;) i'm sure if i went back again, i would bring 4 ballerinas... one for every level! oh yes, the wheels are now turning... well anyways, these girls worked long and hard in the wet streets of Old Sacramento, and deserve a high five for their hard work! So if you see them around, seriously. high five them.
