Where the Lens Led Me.

I chose the Long Beach boardwalk for chaos because people were pushing through the crowd to try to get from one end to the other. Crowds were surrounding the venues that lined the boardwalk. Others were pushing through the masses of people with their bikes. It was loud and children were running around aimlessly.

East Northport, NY - Mark and Kym Schussmann from The Magic of Mark and Kym Magic Show perform a sword illusion on an audience member at the East Northport Festival on September 6th, 2014.

This photo defined fear for me. The boy who was picked from the audience wanted no part of what the magicians Mark and Kim wanted to do to him. He was very doubtful that they could pull off this trick, but he was egged on by the rest of the audience to participate. Who wouldn’t be fearful if someone told you that they were going to stick two knives through your neck!

The pattern in this photo jumped out at me. Although the photo is very interesting because of the yoga pose, the pants caught my attention. The military-style design is a good representation of pattern.

I chose this picture for red because the students’ uniforms jumped out at me when walking around the East Northport Annual Festival. I think the red uniform is the first thing that catches your attention when viewing the photo.

When I was driving past the Heckcher Museum of Art, this sculpture jumped out at me as the perfect example of rust. I focused in on just part of the sculpture because it helps the viewer see the rust.

This picture perfectly represents a typical summer day on Long Island. The sun is shinning down on the waves and the boy. The boy is surfing to cool down in the hot weather at the beach, which is a famous spot for residents of Long Island in the summer.
