In search of pictures

As most of you know, I am going to a photography school called New York Institute of Photography. For my homework projects, I have to take pictures that complete certain objectives. This unit's objectives are to take pictures that emphasize "found" frames (things in nature that draw our eye to the subject), repetition, color, converging lines and focus. With James' job, he has the chance to see a lot of the surrounding towns. He has been on the look out for picture places that will satisfy these objectives. He took me to a few roads that are lined with palm trees to take pictures of repetition. It was hard to get a picture without power lines, road signs, or cars.

We then went to a large sump (that's as close as you get to a pond in California), where James has seen lots of ducks and a few cranes. We tried to take some pictures of the birds, but they didn't like us near them.

I have a few more pictures to take before I can turn in my projects.

Kresta...I had no idea you were going to school for photography. I'm so jealous. I asked for this awesome camera for graduation, and I would like to take some photography classes so I know how to use it. I think that is so cool. You take great pics...You should do weddings or something.
