On Christmas Eve, I had the opportunity to photograph a condensed version of the Nutcracker by The Pink Tutu Ballet Company at The Downtown Container Park by an all local cast. There was a large crowd sitting in front of the stage and many standing behind those seated. Many of the audience found themselves looking at the direct sun to see the details of the stage, but I was fortunate to found a vantage point from stage-right and captured a small sampling of an amazing performance. The capture of a story of a girl and her dreams on Christmas Eve was magical. Here is a selection of images from the performance.
