Why am I smiling
And why do I sing?
Why does September
Seem sunny as spring?
Why do I get up
Each morning and start?
Happy and head up
With joy in my heart
Why is each new task
A trifle to do?
Because I am living
A life full of you.”

Gene Kelly aka. the best dancer EVER. “American dancer, actor, singer, film director, producer, and choreographer. Kelly was known for his energetic and athletic dancing style, his good looks and the likeable characters that he played on screen.”Β  (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene_Kelly).

  1. OK-I picked Gene Kelly for my letter “K”. It must be kismet:) I like the Ingmar Bergman pose-half off the pic. Great job of a young Gene. I can not choose between him or Fred Astaire. Both are fantastic in their dancing but they have different styles so apple and oranges. I think Gene was quite the intelligent dancer and couldn’t stop just at dance.

    • Ha! Great minds think alike πŸ˜‰ And I don’t know, Gene is pretty awesome. I think I would have to choose him over Fred Astaire. Can’t help but love him! Thank you very much!

  2. I’m the 3rd one to comment! ;P You captured his pretty eyes beautifully. I’m watching his dance clips as a motivation to get sort of fit!

  3. It’s the 14th day of the #atozchallenge and I am out blog hopping today. Glad I stopped by.This is so well done. Love your portraits of these iconic faces. Congratulations! If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening this month. Come see me.
