I really enjoy taking holiday photos because there are endless things to focus on. Out of my three photos my favorite one was the photo with the red Christmas lights. When I had the idea for this photo I imagined having more like 3 lights in focus and all the others in blur other than just one light in focus. I feel the more you mess around with photos, the better they turn out.
Students from my school went to a play at the Wilson Theater on 52nd and Broadway. The play was called "Jersey Boys," and most of the other people in the audience seemed very elderly. I think these people came to see the play because the Jersey Boys were popular in the 60s, and I think some of them grew up listen to the Jersey Boys so they thought it would be great to see a play about them. The speaker in the play was Frankie Villi. He was the storyteller, and in the beginning, we saw his brother Tommy. One of the thing Frankie says is:
For these photos I tried to play with different backgrounds, focus on certain body parts, and shoot candid shots. For the first photo, I tried shooting the photo with an interesting and creative background. This background ended up being a pool, I had my subject lean over the pool edge and I took the shot. I like how the water reflects off the pool surface as well in this. The second photo I tried focusing just on my subject's smile, and I also like the extra flower between her teeth. This adds something interesting to the photo, and adds just a bit more color.
Mitch Albom says that texting is bad because we are losing our face to face communication. He believes this is a bad thing. He says we are starting to not hear our loved one talk and we will one day forget their voice or have very little memory of that. http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SM
Not true. You see your family every day and if your in the next room you don't need to text then but when your at a party or out with friends you don't pick up the phone, but you will answer a text cause you can still talk to your friends while texting not while calling.
As technology has grown, the ways to get in touch with someone instantly have as well. In other words, as time passes, texting is becoming more popular. People say that they prefer texting than calling because it is quicker and easier. However, texting could affect in negative ways to your way of communication, social life, and grammar. Texting is changing our lives. Think about it. Won't you be sad if you cannot hear beloved person's voice often?
I never used to text when I was in elementary school, but once I got into middle school it was how everyone communicated. When we were in elementary, it was so cool to get a call from your friend, but now it is lame.
It makes sense why texting is more popular now a days. First people are always busy and don't have enough time to have a conversation out loud and second with new phones coming out it just makes texting easier. If you are in school you can't just go to your locker and call your mom that you need something, you text her and she will get it faster.
Texting is a good thing. I think this because, it is a modern day form of communication. I send around 100 to a 150 text messages a day. I still call people too.
One of my grandmas text me but when my other grandma need to talk to me she calls me. My grandma who texts me is very slow, but when she got the iPhone she is a little faster now. Both of my grandpas refuse to text. They say it is a waste of time and that it is better to call.
When I read this article about texting http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SMit reminded me of the first text message I had sent to one of my friends. I was about twelve years old and had received my phone earlier that year.
Mitch Albom says that he feels sorry for us because we are texting too much. http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SM I personly dissagree with his views. Even though I text, I still talk on the phone and talk to people in real life. I have a cousin who lives England and we can't talk on the phone all the time. But with the help of his iPod touch and my iPhone we are able to text and stay in touch more then we would if we had to call each other. We have conversations almost every week and we wouldn't be able to without texting.
I don't agree with the author of this article http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SM . Just because we're texting it doesn't mean we don't talk to other people. For some people texting is a lot easier. For example, what if you're at your cousins house and it's really loud and your friend calls you. You won't hear anything they say. But, if you get a text from you're friend you're able to communicate without having to worry about the noise.
I thought that this article http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SM was very interesting because I never thought about texting or email from the perspective of a mother. The only reason that I ever thought parents, grandparents, or aunts and uncles wouldn't want to text would be because they don't know how to.
Texting is the main form of communication between teens and as they said in the article, 18-29 year olds. I mainly text people just because it's quick and easy. If you are busy, calling someone would be much harder than texting someone "Be there in 10 minutes." And in the article the part where it said 10 calls and 10 voicemails, that has never happened to me. I NEVER get voicemail and I get calls from my friends sometimes when they say "Wanna go to boulder." But besides for hanging out, I don't call people. Texting like I said is quicker and easier.
With the second picture, I was trying to picture the smile and leave it to the reader to imagine the eyes, face, and what the person is smiling about. Also, the background is very muted with a few trees in the background. In the guitar picture, I tried to focus on the left hand while the right hand was out of focus. I also used natural lighting even though the picture is indoors. In the third picture, I took the picture above the subject to create an abstract image and take a photo from a vantage point that is unusual.
The book "Spoioled" is about family, friendship, a dash of romance, and of course the harships of being the new person in highschool. The book has a total of 268 pages. The book is mainly about teenager from Indiana and then her mother dies and now she knows that her boilogical father of Brick Berlin. The best movie producer in the world! And when she moves to Hollywood, she finds out that she gets to have a sister! But having a sister isn't always a good thing. In this case it isn't. They go through so much DRAMA.
Hello world. My name is Ruth and I will be talking about Hurricane Sandy and how it affected my family, friends and me. First off, I’m the type of person who hardly EVER watches TV. So when the Hurricane hit New Jersey, I was a little nervous and shocked.
Before it struck, the reason why I went to New Jersey is because my cousin, Raymond from D.R. came to live and start a new life in New York, and I wanted to visit him after not seeing him for over nine years. Not to mention, I also went there because my cousin does music and produces, so I wanted him to mix a track for me.
Have cherish all the moments with your family and loved ones? I haven’t always. It was summer, 2006 it felt as hot like a roasting oven. My family and I were having a great time but I never thought that when I got in that cab that drove away that it was going to be that last time I saw my great grandparents.
I needed to start school, so there was no way I could visit them. The only way to communicate was by talking to them by telephone. About two years after, we went to visit my great grandparents he died. It was an exploding bomb on all of us.
When you make a mistake, do you look for a way to fix it? Do you think there is a second chance for what you’ve done? I do. I always look for a second chance, when there is one. I believe that everyone has a second chance in his or her mistake.
When I was 9, I learned about this belief. My mother and father were arguing about something and my father said something’s that he shouldn’t have said to my mother. He thought about what he did and found a second chance by apologizing and telling her that if he could take back what he said, he would. My mother soon forgave him.
The last thing you ever say to someone will be the least thing they ever remember about you. Your words will always count at the end. I never thought about what i could say until it was too late. I believe that last words are important and can’t be taken back.
Last words are the things that everybody takes time saying. They put a lot of thought into it and all of their heart. But what happens when its unexpected? Then you don’t get the chance to tell them everything on your mind before they go. Last words will always count in the end.
Have you ever felt like nobody’s there for you?Feel like you’re alone in the world?Yeah everyone been there at least once in their lifetime.But what I learned from my experiences that when your friends can't be there for you, your family is always going to be there for you right by your side.Family sticks with you like glue no matter what situation.
I don't know for sure, but I think my Aunt, her mom, and wife were rescued from the sixth floor of a building right along the beach in Far Rockaway. She lives in the first building in the Projects. I feel scared for them. I want to know what happened. How can I help them?
I am reading a bestselling national book, called The Autobiography of Malcolm X as told to Alex Haley. I feel that the first chapter is very interesting, and grabs the reader’s attention. Chapter one, pages 1-23 might leave a reader feeling open-minded to how things used to be in the life of Malcolm X. An example shown on page 10. As told by Malcolm X
This past summer I Visited Coney Island. A place where everyone go to chill and hang out. I went with my mother, my aunt, and my little sister. I saw my “lil sis” get on some rides while i chilled with my mother and aunt. While walking around I bumped into my two friends Alexis and Jalissa. I decided to chill with them while my mother and them left.
My mother passed on many traits to her children. Some of us have her jaw, strong and square; some of us have her skin, pale and freckled; and some of us have her hair, dark and curly. Other siblings have inherited her aversion to messiness and her anxiety about heights. I have had the misfortune of inheriting one of her less desirable attributes – her telephoning phobia. To speak plainly, making a simple phone call is more terrifying than donning a string bikini and swimming through a raging river filled with piranhas and crocodiles while being shot at with deadly blow darts.
My mom’s cooking is the best, especially breakfast foods. I loved my early years when she would make me and my sibling’s breakfast each and every morning before school. Thankfully, food was the only thing that would get me up in the morning time.
Best friend telepathy, some people don’t think it exists, but if you ask anyone with a close best friend that can always finish each other’s sentences or just looking at each other you know what the other one is thinking. Personally my best friend and I spend as much time possible together, it could come off as annoying to some people since half of our conversations consist of “that’s what I was gonna say” “Stop reading my mind” and our annoying laughs.
Blog Post: What goes on in dysfunctional families? I ask this question because I wonder why things are so bad in dysfunctional families, families that neglect or abuse children and have so many conflicts and misbehaviors. A dysfunctional family could be caused by mental illnesses, problems, and addictions one or both of the parents have. Their problems resulted from other dysfunctional parents, being co-dependent adults, substance abuse, and alcoholism. Dysfunctional parents would be unforgiving and also ignorant to their children's needs and wants, lacking communication.
On a personal level, i believe that having multiple children is overall better for children then having an only child. I’m not saying that having only one child is a bad thing, but the differences in personality and social interactions are vastly different, all based upon if you were an only child, or if you had siblings.
