Jota Dancer from Aragon at Festa Major of Vilapicina and Torre Llobeta, Barcelona

Jota Dancer from Aragon at Festa Major of Vilapicina and Torre Llobeta, Barcelona [enlarge]

I have been taking pictures at the Festa Major de Vilapicina i la Torre Llobeta, a sort of popular celebration. Each municipality in Barcelona has its own party on a given time of the year and this one was very near to my place. The lady wearing a traditional dress and shawl is a jota dancer from the region of Aragon. She is a member of the dance group Abenjot representing such region of Spain. It is not by chance that I choose October 12th to post this, as it was the day of Virgin of Pilar, the patroness of Zaragoza, capital of Aragon.

That's a really neat portrait. Shots from behind usually don't work so well, but here i think it adds to the charm of the scene...and yes, she really has a great smile ;)
