Day 39 - Falling

While walking around the world my students were once again taking pictures for their Quebec Roots project. We're meeting with the 'Moniques' , author and photographer tomorrow and we were asked to take a few more pictures. I thought this one of 'L' was fun because of the expression on her face and how she seems to be suspended at an angle. In case you're wondering, she ended up flat in the snow a few seconds after this picture was taken.
I love taking pictures but watching the students explore the world through the camera lens is just as fun. It's a pleasure to see their excitement when they know they've captured a special moment. This project has given quite a few of them the photo bug. I hope it's a bug they keep for a lifetime.

Put a smile on my face. Now through photography she is permanently suspended.

A great suspended motion shot! The kids really do like to have their pictures taken! Great to incorporate this with some Quebec history(?).

This is a great capture! I love everything about it: the girl suspended in action, the boy using the pylon as a megaphone and the kid in the foreground looking at the girl. Even the school wire fence adds to the shot because it provides the context (school). Very dynamic shot.

That is a wonderful schoolyard moment captured!
