An Impromptu Dance in Guadeloupe
While traveling to the center of town in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe, I happened upon a group of men drumming in a circle. A crowd had formed and a beautiful woman stepped forward, spinning and dancing in her colorful skirt-- caught in the rhythm of the drums and our clapping. I think this photo captures the spirit of that beautiful island and the spontaneity of when the feeling of dance strikes.
