Pictures from Graham Central Station on March 24.

Pictures from the Country Rain lesson and dance at Paragon Dance Center are available on facebook and flickr.  I prefer that you look at the pictures on facebook so you can tag the pictures, but, flickr is better if you want to download full size pictures.

The Fullscreen viewer in facebook is pretty good, in case you haven’t seen it.  When viewing a picture, hover over the picture, and in the upper right, click the double-headed arrow that points diagonally.  Or, you can click Options toward the lower right, and choose Enter Fullscreen.  Use the left and right keys on the keyboard to easily go through the pictures.

Instructions to download pictures on flickr:  Click on the thumbnail to get to the picture.  In the upper left, click Actions, and choose ‘View all sizes.’  Click ‘Original size.’  After the full size image has completely loaded, right-click on the picture to get the options to save the picture to your computer.  Instructions from there vary, depending on what browser and operating system you are using.

I pointed the flash at the mirror between me and the dancers to get this dramatic lighting.

There was a contest where dancers were blindfolded when they danced the Arizona Two-Step. After round 1, dancers were led to another partner for round 2. Laina Lee snuck these two guys together. I have no idea how long it took them to figure out the other person was a guy, but, they did the whole dance.
