An era gone by

037/365

I can’t remember the last time I went dancing…which is really funny because I was a professional dancer for many years. In fact I can’t even remember the last time I even thought about that particular time in my life…I just kind of moved on. I had Dave dig my old toe shoes out of the shed for this shot…another thing I forgot…how utterly painful those things were. I haven’t put these shoes on for 10 years…10 years! They were from my ballet days…before I moved on to ballroom. Now don’t get all “oh my God I can’t believe you were a dancer!” on me because I wasn’t very good. In fact I’m a better photographer after only 5 months than I was a dancer after 10 years… and I’m not being modest!!

Coen has inherited the love of dance…and also the love of taking self-portraits. After I was done taking these shots he said to me “Mom…I gotta work on my project.” and started imitating me…he has some amazing imitation skills, yo!

Coen's version
