Hafla.

Last night, my Belly Dance instructor had a Hafla (a middle eastern dance party) to celebrate her 26th birthday. A bunch of the dancers from her class and the area got together and we had a great time. Here's the card I made her:

I liked how my Deck of Me card turned out using that photo, so I used it on her card, too.

Asyia also did a Fire Poi show for us. They are, very basically, a flaming ball on the end of a chain which she spins in different directions and patterns. She does two at at time. She also used another version (I think she called them Snakes) which is a flaming rope at the end of a chain. All these photos are with the second one. Her performance was awesome, and I got some really cool photos.





The last one is when she finished and walked over to put them out. I had my shutter open for 30 seconds...the streak to the left is her walking by. I've never had the opportunity to take photos of anything like this. I had such a great time, and I love how they turned out!
