Hi Ishm :-) Thank you for your visit and comments on my blog. Oh you were in Bali!!! Don't you just love these traditional dances? I saw the Kecak Dance at the cliff temple at Uluwatu. This is a beautiful capture of this very vibrant cultural dance. I will be going back to see more of your posts :-)

@Esther K: Hi! Esther :) Thanks for your comments. Welcome to my page. I enjoyed going thru your portfolio, especially the BnW. I happened to watch a documentary (National Geo.) on the people of Pala'uhs a few months back. I couldn't help but to question, hypothetically do we really have the freedom of choice on how we want to live our life..besides the fact whether you are born on a boat, in the jungle or in private hospital or is it predestined. What do you think?
oh...when u dance like that...do u have to have that expression on ur face with ur hand and feet together? Colorful shot

@MysLykeMeeh: Thanks for your comments. Welcome to my page. I'm pretty sure there are certain meanings in every movements in the dance..obviously my knowledge in traditional Bali dance is close to zero..nevertheless it was totally a wonderful experience for me. I noticed the Balinese has a unique way of life, culture, social and religion..have a look at my fav. photo site on Bali www.flickr.com/photos/myudistira you'll be blown away...well, i was.
Wow nice colors! And what expression! Very fine! Congrats!

@Christian: Thanks for your comment. This one is the lucky one. I took dozens of pic that night. It was a challenge for me, the light was low and the dance movement was very fast..but it turned out alright i guess.
lovely vibrant color and motion!!!

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks for your comments. Apart from the colourful costume, I find the eyes' movements and facial expressions he made are also interesting as well.
