Last week Kids with Cameras took a field trip to a farm stand run by a Julian family dedicated to sourcing food as locally as possible. First our guest instructor, Bill Bevill, worked with the students on sharp focus and filling the frame, and then we drove five minutes down the road to Wynola Flats Produce. Stacey Peyakov was a wonderful host, allowing kids to roam through the store as well as the orchard, snapping away. The indoor/outdoor space allowed for experimenting with lighting, and the produce gave us a chance to capture colors, textures, and patterns. One of the goals of both the KWC program and the garden is to develop in kids a “sense of place”—what makes living in Julian unique and wonderful? To do that you have to get out and look around, and what better way to do that than with a camera in hand?
It was wonderful having the students come enjoy our produce stand. If you didn’t notice, I’m a “push over” for KIDS~ We hope you will come again some time and that we can continue to link our gardens, cameras and kids to “Seeing Julian in many different perspectives.” Stacy
That’s my hope as well! Thanks for your support and enthusiasm!
Great idea. Thinking about the photographic composition probably helps the kids see the beauty and wonder and in things like that apple tree. Blessings…
I think so. We do tend to look more closely with a camera in hand! Thanks for reading and responding!
Lots of great photos, Jeff! I sure hope I get to see some of the kids photos too. I missed a great session!
I am really liking how we are folding in “local” locations to work out the principles you are all teaching in class. It’s going to make for a great collection! Thanks for your part in it all.
Nice work and write up. Love that last photograph! Good organization and fun for the Kids with Cameras!
Thanks for all that you do for the little ones:)
Thank you too, Jeff, for coming up with this particular field trip. Great idea, and one more layer of depth to KWC.
This is good on so many levels. I am moved . . .
I too love the “so many levels.” Grateful to have touched you, as it touches me!
