So, my mom bought me a DVD and course book for Intro to Photography. It's done by a National Geographic photographer. I just started it last night. It may be really interesting. The first lesson is whether something is picture worthy. Also includes the direction that sometimes it's better to ignore the photos and just experience what is going on at the moment.

I still have to complete the assignment. It's kind of hard because I don't have a "favorite" room. And there is certainly no activity going on in whatever room I choose since I live alone with no animals. I may have to see if it's windy out. Maybe I should just take my camera to the gym - lol

You may pick up some tips and tricks but in photography nothing is gospel.

I suspect the assignment to take pictures in your favorite room is just to get you to practice taking different pictures within one area. Trying different point of view, up close, far away, different angle, down on your belly shooting up, standing on a chair shooting down. I suspect they are just training you to "see" a thing from different points of view so you can get a feel for what captures it best.

Lots of people walk up to a tourist location and just point the camera at what they see and click the shutter. The really good pictures are taken by people who spend a little time looking at the thing from different angles and at different times with different light.

Check out my picture of the Rosetta Stone. It's actually pretty bad, but I think it's way better than the pictures everyone else there got.

That's worthy of it's own trail. I like it that nobody has vandalized the oak.

Sadly, I think it's because no one knows it is there. A couple ahead of us on the trail told us about it. It's not marked or anything. It was really cool, though

So...

Is Oak Rock Trail, the name of the trail, or is that your name for the trail?

It's the actual name of the trail. But the item that the trail is named after is off the main trail. It's mentioned in the description, but no signs or anything

Suitable for framing... you're gonna need bigger walls.

It's funny you say that! I was just thinking of something to do when I get all 41 parks done this year. Originally, I was thinking of a few pictures. Then, I was going to do a collage with 1 pic from each park, then I decided to make a book of photos. 1-2 from each park.

Also, thanks

Vandals like to work close to home. Luckily it is not called the Confederate Oak.
