oh my! music! and i love your mouse pointer effects! Image<P>paquita, i notice on your english page you ask for help with translation. i am pretty fussy about noticing details, and i couldn't find one thing i could phrase better than you have, so i don't think you need ANY help! congratulations.<P>i notice none of the actual page links are working yet though, from either the french or the english page.....thanks for showing us, while you are building it.

Those cat photos <u>are</u> good paquita.<P>You might like to go to the Mark Morris London season thread. If you scroll down there is a little photo of Tina Fehlandt with her cat. Tina is the MMDC Dance Mistress and was a key dancer in the company in the 80s, .<P>

I LOVE those cat photos--why do dancers always love cats-is it their grace, independence, what????

We're partial to ferrets in Miami, rather than kittys!

Image 'Plage d'Irlande'<P>paquita, if you took these -did you?-, you have quite a talent! <P>i love the roses too (for those of you who get a bit impatient waiting for the images to load - it's at the bottom of the page, so you'll just have to wait!)<P>btw, you must be quite well-travelled if these are all by you.<P>the tutu pic is fun too. i can well imagine the cat would like your tutu, but i DON'T imagine he's much good for the netting - you should see my net curtains! embarrassingly 'holy', because i get tired of telling them off, and just give up! tutu net would be even MORE fun to rip into!

Ferrets? Ferrets! I guess they can be graceful too.<P>Well, I read somewhere that artists in general prefer cats because they are "perfectly-built creatures." I think I also remember reading that wild dogs are also built somewhat like cats; they are mean and lean for hunting and survival.

Paquita! your photos are beautiful. You have a good sense of humor, also. Your cat in the green chair looks just like one I used to have. Did you, or do you study photography, also, or are you self taught? How did you get started in ballet? For many of us, it was a certain performance that we saw when we were young.<P>

Hey all I'm back <P>I've never studied photography, but I love that Image<P>I began to dance when I was 5, in fact, my mother dance ballet too, and since I'm a baby, she's always took me to her dance lessons, I loved that. And I really began because I had some problems with my foot and my doctor said that dance lessons could help Image<BR>First it worked, and second, I've never stopped the dance lessons during all this time ! <P><BR>

just curious, paquita, whether you also have any other artistic background in your genetic makeup, aside from your mother being a dancer. do either of your parents paint, or draw, or design? anything visual? - if you have never studied photography, you are certainly showing a fine eye for its principles...<P>have you ever tried talking ballet photos: oh, boy, THAT's a challenge!
