140 Day 1 Bella Donna Competition

We made our way to Long Beach today for the two-day long dance competition. We have been to this competition before and I took photos. Those photos captured the moment but not necessarily the feelings associated with competition. This time I had a vision of the lights and the stage and the activity happening in the wings. I released the need to actually watch the dances and instead became the photographer. I'm much happier with the photos I created this time around. And...the girls danced beautifully!
