This past month has included an increased awareness, search, and celebration of TEXTURE...the texture that is all around everyday, everywhere…but especially as it exists in nature. And what a perfect opportunity Scholars students have had as they have been to explore with our resident photographer Barabas, as he is fondly called. It is like we have this ready made, just PERFECT laboratory and photo op right here in our RiverHawk space. Treat yourself to some of what Scholars students and staff have seen and expressed so far with the help of a little direction and their keen sense of wonder, vision, and cameras. What a visual and mentally tactile treat!
Which ones draw you in….make you want to reach out and touch? We are looking to name our photos … any ideas?
