Location City -  South Bank
State -  LONDON
Country - United Kingdom   United Kingdom
About This is Levi, my youngest grandson, caught during a momentary pause while doing some break dancing in public. Heather, Micki (eldest daughter), Levi and myself had been walking along the South Bank near the London Eye when amongst the many buskers and human statues there was a very good street dance group. They had drawn a crowd of more than two hundred people and at the end of their act they passed around containers to collect their reward. Most groups of people gave them coins and then moved on to watch other acts taking place further on.
Levi asked his Mother to ask the leader of the group if he could show him what he could do and the guy said OK. The rest of the group were sitting around after an exhausting routine just talking and refreshing themselves.
They put some music on and Levi started his own version of street/breakdancing; a small group of people gradually gathered around; then even more took an interest in what Levi was doing. There was a quick conference between the real dancers and then they started to gently push the now large crowd back and into a larger circle. They then announced that they would re-start their routine again but with Levi as a 'guest star'. So my little 5 year old grandson along with his newly found 'friends' entertained another crowd of more than two hundred.

I will post some more shots of him doing his thing along with some of the acrobatic dancing of the group over the coming weeks.
I have attached three other shots of the same pose because I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best.

Many thanks for taking a closer look and a big THANK YOU if you comment before you leave.

Best wishes to you all.

Fantastic capture dear Ray!!!

Love the 'frozen in time' and very seriously looking Levi... I'll bet that he gave quite a performance and that a certain 'he who shall not be named granddad' was gleaming with pride... ;-DD Very well done R2, excellent pic!!

Hi Ray!

Such a healthy and atheletic grandson! Congratulations!

Regarding the sepia tones - my preference also - the first (top) shot has a unique paralel shadow that lends an abstract feel. I like your clever use of the person removal tool! :)

In my MHO, you chose the best one among the 4th you did my dear friend. I like the expression you capture as well the perfect light illumating his face. The pose gives some movement to the composition.
A beautiful work.
Compliment for you and your break dancer
Have a nice day Ray.
All the best
