Off the Ground
A photo session with Dr. Shapley, who back in the days used to be a dancer! The setting is a historical brick factory located at Denis Point, in Beacon. I walk under these exposed beams daily, as part of my leisure walk along the trails. For a time I’ve been thinking of doing something in this setting, and the idea of having a dancer floating up in the air on this beautiful scenery kept crawling on me. I knew of a dancer in my neighborhood, and through a common friend I reached out to him. But he turned down the idea; after all he is now a doctor and not a dancer. Few days later we met on the site and shot (and jumped!). I really want to thank Lee Shapley for collaborating on this little project! I also want to thank his wife and son Janine Twining and Jack Twining for their help! The behind the scenes photos were taken by Jenine. Thanks!
