A couple of weeks ago I was a volunteer at a dance competition, working as an interpreter. It was an intense week and a really amazing experience too!
The competition had its official photographers and any other photographers were only allowed if part of the press. Still, I asked for permission to bring a camera on one of the days and take some backstage pictures.
The weird part is that on that day I felt really uncomfortable, like it wasn’t my place to be photographing. Every time I had a break from translating, I would take my camera out – yet, there were just so many things going on around me that I just couldn’t get in the right mind set to photograph…
I was going to delete these photos because they’re blurry and didn’t turn out at all as I had imagined. On second thought, I realized they are quite a good representation of how I felt that day.
After realizing it was not going to work out with the camera, I decided to share the experience through Instagram. The following were all taken with my phone. If we’re connected on Instagram you might have seen some of them already.
