Mary Spencer Knapp in Bryant Park during Accordions Around The World final performance of 2014

I had already gotten several good photos of her with a smaller aperture autofocus lens, but I wanted to get one with better bokeh.  I used an old Minolta 50mm f1.7 manual focus lens stopped down to f2.0.  Because she was moving a lot, it was difficult to get her in perfect focus at that depth of field.  With a combination of anticipation and luck, I got the shot after a few tries.
