Cartagena 2008: The Dancers in Parque de Bolívar

It was a hot night. I heard music — Wild Afro-Caribbean beats. I followed the sound to Parque de Bolívar, in the center of the old city. There was rhythm, sweat, dancing, music, costumes, and a monkey. I turned my camera flash off and started shooting. The photos that resulted were more true to the actual sensation of being there than sharp, well-lit images would have been.
