She has worked very hard and had excelled at everything she has put her mind to. I don’t think the world is ready for her.

From a small bundle of noise to a larger bundle of noise … ok. she’s still making noise but I’ve grown to love her noise. In September the house will be a lot quieter.

Kiran needed to photograph some architectural elements for her AP course project. We walked and drove around Princeton and Princeton University on a photographic scavenger hunts for what she needed. I discovered parts of the campus and the town I had not explored before. Helping her with her project forced me to photograph subjects I had overlooked in the 18 years I have lived in the area. I have included a few of the best of the set of images. I need to create my won scavenger hunt.

One requirement of her project is that members of her “team” had to be included in the photographs. Bhavna, Shaan and Kiran took turns posing for the pictures.

The light changed during the three hours we walked around. It went from afternoon to early dusk, to nighttime. Making sure we had good images to use in Kiran’s project and doing it all hand-held, pushed the limits of my camera and photography skills. The Fuji X-T2 held up well even at ISO 12,800.
