In short, Brandilyn and I went on a photo field trip because she had received a new camera for Christmas. I think I am 'miss let me teach you something about taking pics B-ran!' When I picked her up from her home, we did not have a plan about the WHERE but we had a plan about the WHAT. In other words, we did not know where we wanted to go but we knew what we wanted to do when we got there. Our intention was to pracitice taking pics with our cameras on what I call a 'photo field trip'.
We jumped on the intersate and headed east. Desination? Any destination USA. Actually, as we drove, we decided to visit a local college campus for photo opps. It was the perfect time to go there because school was shut down for the holidays. We pulled into the parking lot and was stopped by the campus police. "Where ya headed?" I told him what we were doing and he gave us permission to park and walk the campus grounds. As we walked about, I showed Brandilyn a tip about changing your perspective to give new interest to a photo. She and I both were doing the 'let's see how a worm sees' trick by getting underneath our subject and shooting up. Here is an example of her two best pics. I'm jealous because when I saw hers, I thought they blew mine out of the water! Ok, so little 'miss let me teach you...' (me) got SCHOOLED by her high school aged niece! And, I ain't too proud to say it because I am a very proud Aunt indeed. :)

Go B-ran, I love it!
