A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Dance

Its been a lot of photography posts but you know what, I’ve been somewhat slacking off on this section and I needed a break from watching movies and set a new schedule and routine after work.  Healthier one, perhaps.  You’ve heard about DDR rambling and maybe I’ll do a few more rambles here and there about things I love or hate, etc.  Anything you want to hear about give me a shout out in the comments.

On the note of DDR, I’d like to give my response to Sue’s A Word A Week Challenge – DANCE over at her blog A Word in Your Ear.  Head over and join into this fun challenge, it doesn’t have to be photography just anything you think of that’s related.  I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance.  Not all that fake dancing in DDR, but actual ballroom dancing.  However, I am missing a partner and the funds…so the plans have been postponed for over 5 years, I’d suppose.  I know that I’ll do it one day just not now.  So when I see people dancing in groups or by themselves with all the beautiful, loud, rhythmic, fast, slow, improvised, rehearsed…I love to see it all.

Here’s just a few of those moments that I found…

Just a little break, do you miss the beach? I do…I’m just hoping the snow melts soon and it’ll be time to go to the beach again.  Moving on…

I’m trying to get this on and then a bit after, I found a lucky person to pass it on to 😉 Thanks to my mom for taking this picture to remember the embarrassing moments in Egypt…*blush*

Do you know how to dance? Whats your fave style?

Magic: Fruit Transposition

Last night my mom forwarded this YouTube video to me.  It is in Chinese but magic doesn’t change and has no language barrier, right? Right!

This little magic trick is called Fruit Transposition.  Mr. Magician here is super awesome.

He goes to the fresh food market and asks a lady to choose two fruits..any two that she just bought.  She chooses first a chestnut (never knew that was a fruit but thats okay, I buy it) and a kiwi.  What he does is totally mind-boggling.  Of course, the lady felt the same way so Mr. Magician told her to choose any two fruits at the booth there.

She walks around and goes, “How about a papaya? Wait, No! Can we use a watermelon?”

Mr. Magician hesitates and says, “Why don’t you pick something else? Its a bit big.”

So she insists to use it and asks, “If its big, then it doesn’t work?”

He says, ” No…it can work”

She picks it up and says, “I want to use the watermelon.”

Then they bring it to the table and he asks her to choose the second fruit, a banana, and to choose the exact one she wants.

And he does the trick again…

Thats just a quick translation of what goes on. Here’s the video! Watch and wonder, my friends!

I love the quote at the end, “A conjuror is nothing if he only amuses and fails to inspire wonder.”-1876 Thomas Frost

I’m still wondering the possibilities of how he did it.  My mom and I has this discussion also.

What do you think? Any ideas?
