  2. You are certainly learning to see things in a way that is new and interesting. Several particularly stand out for me. 825 is a wonderful balance of shapes and colours. “See you at the movies is a unique look at theatre seats, I love the dark quiet feel, the anticipation in the photo.

  6. I remember having a similar assignment. Nice variety of lighting situations. There’s something melancholic about the silhouettes in the penultimate image.

  10. You must be having a great time with the class – I hope to hear more about it. I like the first garage image and 825 very much – 825 for those delicious colors and the light – and also the green leaf for its pure “standingoutness.”

  15. An excellent set. The little detail on the back of the theater seats in “See You At The Movies” reminds me of the speakers at the old drive-in theaters. Sometimes, though, setting aside the camera can also help in learning how to see – at least I think so.

    Have a great week, Jane.
