school field trip

I helped out on a school field trip into the city today.
One thing I've learned this past year is to always bring my camera.
And not just to get the obligatory group photo ...
but to capture the otherwise missed details.
Putting  mundane images to film somehow gives them purpose.

I absolutely love today's post and the lovely photos that went with it, but more importantly, I love what you said about the mundane being given purpose.

You have an impeccable eye.

The elephant sign is too cute for words, and I LOVE the swirly art on the building. Capturing bits and bobs of life is what a camera is for, Kimmie. Your pics are awesome! Hope you had a great trip too. Hugs, Terri xoxo

Kimmie - for myself, I am so glad you take your camera with you - everywhere. I LOVE seeing what you see. A gift from your lens to mine! Wonderful photos that make me smile....Love the picture out the bus window!

Yesterday, I was at our state capital building and there was a group of students - probably 4th grade. A small group was in the women's bathroom and there was one girl taking photos of things in the bathroom - a future photographer I think!
