Talk about perfect timing. This is so cool the way shes holding that hat down and we see the hat pin that shes about it put in. I love the colors and the design of the hat and her blouse. Its as artful and pretty as I be her performance was. A wonderful event for some foot tapping music and photo shoots. Wonderful dear friend.

Hope she sticks that Hatpin in the right place! It looks like a dangerous feat! Glad I don't wear hats! Very cool capture, Michelle! Wonderful clarity ... and I love the Bokeh in the background ... or is it the foreground since she's facing the other way? Ha! Ha! Excellent work either way! :)

You have some fabulous candids from this event, Michelle! Here is another one that grabbed me - very compelling and something different. Love the action here and the print dress and bokeh in the BG!

Have won more often ;)).
