Traveling Back

It's a scenic ride on the train back from Sandy Spring Friends School. I am working my internship there and sharing what I know about photojournalism with the students. When I am there among the students I remember back when I was their age. Today, I was going over the high school students' photo story projects with Lori the journalism instructor. I told her I had been editing photos since high school, maybe before. Down by the playground I saw a middle school student sitting on the bench drawing during recess. I remembered drawing at the picnic table during recess when I was in Preschool. When I boarded the yellow school bus that takes me to the Metro train, an interested student said, "Are you a photographer? That's one of the things I want to be." I told him to stay interested in art.
