"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

You know you make me wanna (Shout!), Kick my heels up and (Shout!)

“Throw my hands up and (Shout!)”

SHOUT- Originally recorded by the Isley Brothers in 1959- Here Nancy and friend Eric kick up their heels at Lauren and Jesse’s wedding in Alexandria, PA. It was fun to catch them mid-air.

(I know, the woman’s legs under Eric confuse the photo but I liked the effort and energy of their enthusiastic dancing)

Bridesmaid Nancy and friend Eric dance to SHOUT!

    I love the lady’s legs under Eric. It makes for an interesting picture. Good Job!

  3. I love the expression on Nancy’s face; and I agree with Sue that the contrast of Eric’s suited body paired with female legs is intriguing; definitely makes people stop & linger at the image a bit longer. :)

    Fun to see “what people wear to a wedding!” in2011. And the black bridesmaids dresses! Unthinkable when I got married LOOOOOOOOOOOOOG ago. Shoes, too! The pink dressy flip-flops on the guest at right!!! Yes, love the energy!

    • For my wedding 10 years ago, I “allowed” (encouraged) each of my (3) bridesmaids to select a ‘little black dress’ of their choosing. Not only did each gal look (and FEEL) fabulous, but they also now have a nice dress to wear to ‘black tie’ events. :)
