Capture the moment


First semester has come to a close. For Gracie, my 10th grader, that means the end of her photography class. This is the second photography class she has taken through her cyber school.  She has enjoyed it immensely and has learned a great deal. She has discovered that she has a passion and a talent for it. For her final assignment in Photography II she was asked to put together a power point presentation  of 10 of her favorite photographs that represent her personal style of photography.

Here is a glimpse of Gracie’s world through the lens of her camera…
