Keep Swimming...Just Keep Swimming

Yesterday, I went on a fun-filled field trip with the 3rd graders to the Living Planet Aqaurium. I was assigned to be in charge of a group of boys that consisted of Alex and his best friend Evan. It was a piece of cake to be in charge of those two, and let me tell you, I've had some horrendous field trip experiences in all my years of field trip attendance. There was this one time when I went on a field trip with Nate when we lived in Arizona. I was in charge of a rather unruly bunch....not Nate, but some of the other boys. Wowie. Wow. Wow. About an hour into the field trip, I started getting a migraine that lasted throughout the rest of the day. On the way home on the bus, I was certain I was going to lose my lunch because my head hurt so much. But anyway....

Yesterday's field trip was not nearly that stressful. I came away headache-free and even got to shoot Nemo. I know, I know, fish are friends, not food....I only shot him with my camera. Really, though, is there anything tastier than grilled fish...?

Okay, now I'm hungry.

You got alot of great shots. Great color to them. I love the ballet shoes. Can I ask what did you do to convert them and did you also add a texture?
