The first thing I noticed about this gorgeous woman was her incredible posture. When I asked if I could take her photo she announced, "Of course and do you know how old I am? I am 90-years-old." After taking her photograph I handed her my card and told her to email or call me if she wanted to see the photos. The next day I received a call from her asking me to send her the photo. She told me that she started ballroom dancing about five years ago and that she dances about four hours a week. Helena also invited me to come photograph her with her instructor, Manuel Rojas, sometime soon. I can't wait to meet Helena in her dance studio and find out the secret to her wonderful spirit and vitality.
New York was treated to an explosion of color and creativity with the gathering of some of the city's most gorgeous ladies at Senior Planet this week. This fabulous group of women reminds of Iris Apfel's famous quote, "More is More and Less is a Bore."
