Capoeira in the park

It’s time to get back in the photoblogging groove, so here it goes.

A few years back, my wife and I (it was so long ago, she may not have even been my wife then) went to Meridian Hill Park to take in the traditional Sunday drum circle. While that was going on, two men were doing capoeira, the Brazilian martial art/dance/acrobatics/game. I started shooting in black and white and liked how the photos came out — especially those that capture their faces while the rest of their bodies are in blurring-fast motion.
