A Reflection On Emma

Emma took 2nd place for her age group in the photography category at the school's Reflections contest for her piece "Lilly."

Emma decided Beauty is... Her cat Lily and set out to take a great picture of the kitten. She got dad to show her all the buttons in the camera and settled on a sepia effect. She zoomed in all the way "to make Lilly bigger" she said and spent half an afternoon taking pictures of the cat.

Eventually she settled on a selection, filled out the form in her own hand and sent the photo off with great anticipation.

At first we thought Emma would need to be content with her participation certificate when we spied ribbons on other entries. Soon a red ribbon was withdrawn from an envelope and placed on Emma picture. Mom, Dad,
Grandma and Grandpa each watched as Emma found her friends and introduced them to her photograph.

Now we wait for her photo to be judged at the district competition. We'll keep you posted.

Good job Emma! That picture looks really good.
And good job to you, Doug and Hannah, for not being one of "those" parents who would give her the camera but then tell her exactly how to take the picture. :)
