Summer and I were dancing in the park. The day was a bright-hot sort of day. And the wind was inciting... The camera was challenged by constant shifting of light and shadow. The music coming from my phone through the portable speaker was often drowned out by birdsong and wind in the trees. We moved in a public space, in a somewhat secluded glen. Our tender bare feet must adjust to a ground strewn with small bits of fallen debris from the branches above us. Our dancing was slow to develop and connection with one another was subject to distraction.
