Circus Tents

Last week I saw a great performance of Cirque du Soleil, the avant garde circus that originated in Canada. It was a terrific performance! If you ever have a chance to see their show called Kooza I'd recommend it. This is a shot of the tents before the performance. Unfortunately the sun was setting so the light wasn't great. I like the curve of the tents though. Definitely see Cirque du Soleil if they come to your city!

I went in January this year to see them in the Albert Hall. They are fantastic. The show was called Quiddam.

An excellent photograph Lori, even if the light on Randall's Island was not quite what you wanted. Your framing and composition are perfect. I appreciate your ability to depict the essence of something, for example the tents here, without showing a boring textbook view (which I have been known to do, LOL!) Jay W.
