I have been obsessed with visiting India since I was a small child. When I finally had the opportunity to visit friends in Bangalore in 2011, I jumped at the chance. During a packed two weeks I explored southern India with my husband and my camera. This photo was taken during an evening performance of a Mohiniyattam Classical Dance in Kumarakom, Kerala. This dance originated in the 16th century and is performed by a single female dancer. The word Mohiniyattam means "dance of the enchantress."
