I am in awe of photographers that are able to capture the energy and spirit of dancers in motion. I think it must take both great skill and a great camera. My pictures of dancers almost always come out unflattering and blurred.

I found some great pictures of bellydancers on The Daily Tentacle. What strikes me is the diversity of ages, colors, and sizes; one thing everyone seems to have about them (not to get too new age-y on you, but…) is a beautiful aura. Take the above picture– it really puts a smile on my face.
