Two young Latin Lotharios came instantly to mind when I saw the topic for The Daily Post’s weekly Challenge. Four years on and they still bring a smile to my face. The topic is “Enveloped”

These wee  future Cuban lovers started off dancing for us in a slightly self conscious way but before they knew it, they were totally enveloped by the music and the beat. They owned the courtyard. They must have been all of 5 years old but  they had the sexy hip moves and grooves of professional dancers. It was as if they surrounded, engulfed, encompassed, and cocooned in the rhythms that we no longer existed.

I love the last picture of the wee guy with his eyes closed and totally engrossed.

They were so enveloped in the music that they became oblivious to us, while we were enthralled and charmed. We in turn became enveloped in them. A screen went up to the outer world and we only had eyes for them. Mesmerising!
