MM 4-02 Madrid Dancer

We were walking around Madrid one day during our 2010 trip to Spain and we found ourselves at the Plaza Major, a popular tourist spot. My wife decided to do some shopping and so I decided to relax for a while with a sangria and watch and listen to some flamenco music. Leanne’s theme this week for her Monochrome Madness Challenge is moving or movement. Well, this Spanish dancer made a lot of moves that day and I captured one of them with this shot which will be my entry for this week’s Challenge.

Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Thursday (Wednesday in North America and Europe) to see how photographers from all over the world are interpreting her movement theme in monochrome.

Bonus picture: Guess what we brought back from Spain for our four-year-old granddaughter?
