City Hall Plaza International Dance Festival Russian Redhead Wig Pointing - Seoul, South Korea - Daily Travel Photos
(Seoul, South Korea)
f/2.8 || 1/250s || @146mm || ISO500 || Canon 5D || Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 Embed Code

A Russian dancer performs as part of a special event called, Encounters with World Cultures in Seoul.

Previously you saw Mexican traditional dancers' photos from this event. If anyone can explain the origins of this dance and which culture it belongs to, I'm all ears. Naturally, the M.C. spoke in Korean so I may have heard something about Russia or it may have concerned the latest spicy pork recipe. There's really no way for me to know. But Dracula is Romanian, no?

See a smaller version on Flickr.

Ok, no dance explanations necessary, partially because I don't have any. Just enjoy the pretty girl twirling in low multi-color stage lights.

A bit blurrier than I'd like but I was trying not to push the ISO to 800, and already at f/2.8, 1/250s, I was at the far extreme of acceptable camera settings for this focal length.
