Hutzot Hayotzer 2014: Flamenco Natural

Posted by Avital Pinnick on August 14, 2014


Flamenco Natural, led by Sharon Saguy, appeared on the small stage of Hutzot Hayotzer (Jerusalem International Arts & Crafts Festival), May 11, 2014. Flamenco is quite popular in Israel. If I were tall, skinny, and blessed with excellent coordination, I’d sign up for classes immediately. <sigh!> Flamenco is beautiful to watch and tricky to photograph without a tripod.

Video: Flamenco Dancer and Guitarists

Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 13, 2013

The guitarist is Baldi Olier, originally from Romania. The dancer is Yael Tuchfeld. Someone told me that the rhythm guitarist is Olier’s son. They played after dinner (department fun day). Sorry about the unsteady camera. After a day’s activities, a couple glasses of malt whiskey and a lot of food it wasn’t easy to hold the camera still.

Line Fun Day, 2013: Camels and Flamenco

Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 13, 2013


We spent the afternoon and evening at Eretz Bereishit (Genesis Land). Yes, I did ride a camel, but not the one in this photo.

Red buttercups:


Tiny irises:


Purple flowers, which I’ve never seen before:

I photographed this kid during the shepherding workshop. What a face! It was in constant motion, so I was lucky to get this shot, head on and in focus.


The live entertainment after dinner was provided by flamenco guitarist Baldi Olier and dancer Yael Tuchfeld. They were very impressive.
