Technique

Ack - unpointed foot, weird hands (and face) - ballet technique has become more demanding of professionals, or the photog caught her at a weird moment. Still pretty though. I like the costume. Yes, I'm a (former) dancer.

You know, it would take a tougher lady than me to leap about on uncultivated weeds in bare feet. So pretty, but I cringe when I think of all the boot-piercing thorny things I've encountered on camping trips in settings like this and the earlier one in the woods.
