Through Ezra’s Eyes 25-April-2012
No matter how awesome your Wednesday was, you’d be hard pressed to top all the cool stuff Ezra did on his field trip yesterday! I wanted to go too, but alas, no grownups allowed! It’s kind of the opposite of the height restriction on a roller coaster? I’m too tall to ride the field trip bus?
Sometimes I joke(?) that I’m a Blind Ogre when standing next to Sophie. She sees things that I don’t, and sees things in ways that I don’t. It would seem that the same is true of Ezra, and all I needed in order to see the world through his eyes was a good camera!
Before he left, I asked him to take lots of pictures, of just anything at all that caught his eye or interest whether he thought it would make a good ‘picture’ or not. I really just wanted to see what he saw on his field trip. I whittled it down to my favorite 136 pictures, but he took over 200. Looking through them all was kind of like walking through his day with him.
I love them all! Some of them are things of beauty, some are geometry, some are just interesting. Some even surprised me! He took so many pictures of the flowers and the plants in the gardens… some very very good photographs as well, but what intrigued me most was that he stopped to take such detailed pictures of them. I love that he took a picture of the huge crane towering over the trees. I love them all!
So his Wednesday involved ancient history, our state capital, government, museums, flowers, genetic engineering, civil war relics, architecture, smiles, and all the Tomfoolery you’d expect from 2 buses full of 5th graders… how was your Wednesday??? 136 pictures: The next best thing to being there!
