Adventure

Today my high school students went to Parson's Child and Family Center in Albany to try out some high ropes activities for team work and fun. This fit in my curriculum perfectly since we were talking about fear and your brain's response to fear. Here are just a few shots. I like the first, because Nate is doing the dreaded leap of faith...climb up a 40 foot pole, balance on the wobbly square foot platform and jump to a trapeze bar 6 feet away in the air. Nate made this look easy!

You sure did capture the spirit of the day, Jayme! These are terrific!!! My favorites are the first 4.
:-) In the last one, the portrait of Madeline and Marius, I love how they are both looking away from the camera. Their expressions are great...as are the other subjects! Just wonderful, Jayme, and thanks for sharing your day with us.

Great shots. An activity like this is such a great place to take candids. Everyone is happy and having so much fun, there's no bad expressions--nice job.
