Today was my third day of summer break and I've been so busy. Yesterday I spent the morning partcipating in a Art in the Park activity. I'm lucky enough to live next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As a school we have a special relationship with the park. Each year from Kindergarten to 8th grade the students get to go on 3 field trips to the park. They combine science and social studies along with our units and standards we have to meet. We have someone who has the background in education and with the national park that works at our school organizing and running these field trips. She also does a lot of volunteer opportunities and a few activities in the summer. Yesterday, we went to the park and worked on photography and sketching.Our art teacher (who is also the photographer for my wedding) led the workshop. It was fun to play with my camera and see what I could do. I was fascinated by the light around this one tree. So I played with different settings on my camera, I had never played with. Our park person, showed me smilebox so I made one of my pictures I took yesterday. I thought I would share. Some of them were not half bad. I enjoy taking pictures but don't think I'm all that great at it. I'd love to try my hand at some editing them but I don't even know where to start.
