George's pram.  George is a local with, well a few socializing problems I guess.  But he is also an artist of sorts (perhaps not knowingly) - the attached is one of his cart/pram series photographed from the open french doors of JG's breakfast place where I now sit...

My camera wouldn't be good enough for dance photos.. but if you'd like to see some photos from around where I live.. http://www.zooomr.com/photos/LGD

I think your photos are awesome! Certainly different style from mine.
Why do you say your camera isn't good enough for dance photos?

I recently made my first attempt at dance photography. I chose to go with longish (~1/2 - 1/30th of a second) exposures because I felt it would capture the dance better. I might try a short exposure (light permitting) if I do it again. The dance isn't a partner dance, but rather a Chinese ribbon dance.

WOW!!!

These are fabulous - you have an extraordinary talent in particular at city/landscape photography.  And these were taken on a point and shoot???

Thanks. My camera has a manual mode which is what I use. But it isn't an SLR, and I can't go above ISO100 without introducing unbearable amounts of noise. The aperture goes form f3.2 to f8 and the shutter speed from 1/1000 to 16 seconds.  I also have an annoying shutter lag time. For ballroom photography I would need more than ISO100.

For ballroom you really need less than f3.2 (<2.0) - and a negligable shutter lag.  I'm well aware of both problems!  The low f stop value is essential to avoid the use of flash - it ruins almost all the pictures. 
Which basically means a digital SLR now.

I probably wouldn't want to go with a very wide aperture to avoid depth of field + focussing issues. I'd rather deal with the low light with a high ISO. My shutter lag is predictable so it's easy to compensate for (or I could just rapid fire shots and hope some of them turn out well - which I've done for train and also bird shots). My main problem with my camera is the noise levels at a high ISO (a better aperture range would of course be nice for other reasons).

Still think wide aperture is best - you get very good at fast focus - or you just put it on automatic.  The large aperture has the additional advantage of making the background out of focus - which makes the couple stand out without any post-shot messing (which is never perfect anyway).
