"……..When I return to my house I find that visitors have been there and left
their cards, either a bunch of flowers, or a wreath of evergreen, or a
name in pencil on a yellow walnut leaf or a chip. They who come rarely
to the woods take some little piece of the forest into their hands
to play with by the way, which they leave, either intentionally or
accidentally. One has peeled a willow wand, woven it into a ring, and
dropped it on my table. I could always tell if visitors had called in
my absence, either by the bended twigs or grass, or the print of their
shoes, and generally of what sex or age or quality they were by some
slight trace left, as a flower dropped, or a bunch of grass plucked and
thrown away, even as far off as the railroad, half a mile distant, or by
the lingering odor of a cigar or pipe. Nay, I was frequently notified of
the passage of a traveller along the highway sixty rods off by the scent
of his pipe………"

Henry David Thoreau (Walden)

Summer. When the day is over
There’s a heart a little colder;
Someone said goodbye,
But you don’t know why.
Somewhere there is someone keeping
All the tears they have been weeping,
Someone said goodbye,
But you don’t know why.

Is there a reason
Why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
You were lost although you don’t know why?
Give me a reason
Why you never want to say goodbye.
If there’s a reason,
I don’t know why.

Always looking for a meaning,
All the time you keep believing,
But I don’t know why
You won’t say goodbye.
Even when the sun is shining
You don’t see the silver lining,
But I don’t know why
You won’t say goodbye.

Is there a reason
Why a broken dream can never fly?
Is there a reason
You believe and then you close your eyes?
Give me a reason
Why you hide away so much inside.
If there’s a reason,
I don’t know why.

Is there a reason
Why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
You were lost although you don’t know why?
Give me a reason
Why you never want to say goodbye.
If there’s a reason
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why

************************

Nearly a year elapsed after I photographed the tango dancers gathering on Pier 45 (where Christopher Street runs into the Hudson River in New York City’s West Village), before I finally came back in late-August 2014. I had been preoccupied with other duties, and I was away from the city for most of August, finally returning to the Pier 45 on the weekend before Labor Day…

As I’ve mentioned in other Flickr sets, I have now met a few of the dancers at previous tango events, and I made a point of introducing myself to several others, handing out business cards with my Flickr address so that people would be able to find these pictures without too much difficulty. But the dancers have good reason to be more interested in the music, and the movement of their partners, than a guy on the sideline with a camera — so most of them simply ignore me…

As I’ve also pointed out in some previous Flickr albums (here, for example), I do not dance the tango; and even after watching the dancers for nearly three years, I know almost nothing about the history, the folklore, or even the steps and rhythms of the tango. But after accidentally stumbling upon a local gathering of tango aficionados on a business trip to Washington in August 2009 (see my Flickr set Last tango in Washington), I discovered that there were similar informal events throughout New York City. When I got home, I searched on the Internet and found a schedule of upcoming tango events at several different NYC locations — including Pier 45, where I made my first visit in mid-April of 2010, which led to this set of photos.

Altogether, I’ve now taken a dozen sets of tango-related photos, and you can see a thumbnail overview of them in this Flickr collection. And if you’d like to watch some other examples NYC tango dancing, check out Richard Lipkin’s Guide to Argentine Tango in New York City.

For a video version of the tango dancers, complete with music (which isn’t really tango music, but that’s okay), check out my YouTube page from 2011; it’s here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqmnTQuwn54&list=UUUXim5Er2O4…
