This was a shot I took in Ireland 4 years ago. We stopped by this abandoned church and its accompanying graveyard on our way to Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher. I really enjoyed the imagery of the stony chapel against the verdant green backdrop. The odd quiet that seemed to envelop the area while the wind whistled in my ears was peace at its best. -Joe Sweeney

The Time of Growth

Jessica Objartel, Sudent Submission, 11th Grade April 20, 2016

At first I had only known darkness, the warmth of the earth, and the coldness of the water that quenched my thirst. Then, after what I assume was time had passed, I came to know the vast, never ending...

My Photography class went to downtown Atlanta and took photos. Everyone overlooked the nearby fountain, but I saw beauty in it and took some pictures. People never see the hidden beauties around them and they miss opportunities like my opportunity to take this picture. -Lael White

As I look down on the majestic ruins of Machu Picchu, I am filled with emotion I can only imagine is similar to what it feels like to conquer the world. Nothing could have prepared me for this moment; no pictures that I had seen of the ruins could compare to beauty that was before me. I am at a loss for words because this is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. Misty clouds cling to the Andean Peaks and green mountains are below me, making me feel like I am in a mystical jungle. -Laura Chamblee

Future

This picture was taken over the summer when my family and I went on a road trip. In West Virginia we stopped at River Valley Gorge and I was inspired to take this picture because of the way the trees frame the bridge and its natural beauty.

When The Battles of Thames Killed Tecumseh: First and Second Variations

SungMin Park, Staff Writer March 16, 2016

The poem is fiction. It comes in two variations and it is written from Tecumseh's point of view. I imagined Tecumseh dying to an American soldier, a soldier who displayed a laughable irony. The irony is...

This older woman asked to be allowed to paint within the art museum in D.C. and I was fortunate enough to witness her painting an exact replica of this famous painting. She has a true talent and would rather paint for the joy of it without being considered a professional and without seeking fame.

I sit on a chair, waiting I stare at the screen, dreaming I look around the room, thinking but I can't seem to find it The strokes of my fingers move swiftly The letters on the page appear immediately The...

During a mission trip to the Dominican Republic last on spring break, little Addi started out shy and hiding in the corner. This was the first time she broke through her wall and let herself have fun. Ultimately, I think this picture represents the joy everyone has inside them but few ever truly express. -Molly Williams

The Apple Thief

Mahima Siripurapu, Student Submission, 11th Grade March 8, 2016

I don’t know if children are born with a natural tendency to be malicious. There are obviously cases where children are perfect. Take for example Malia. Growing up, my mother would repeatedly remind...

My family goes hiking almost every weekend, and we love venturing out and finding new places. -Jessica Borla

Worldly Gems

Jessica Borla , Advertising Lead March 1, 2016

What hidden beauty the world beholds, Pure and untouched. Far closer such splendor lies than most realize, And therefore they do not explore this world; Robots stuck in this urban universe, Blind. Machines...

This was taken on a day that I had a really important test in first period. I was extremely stressed and almost late for school, but this sunrise made me feel an inner peace and happiness. I slowed down and appreciated my surroundings, and it made me realize that even if I was late, everything was going to be okay. I just had to slow down and breathe. -Esosa Ekhosuehi

A Worm

The picture was intended to capture the rainbow. The freighter passing by was sheer luck. -Josh Lombardo

Speak Up

Nusaybah Smith, Associate Editor February 22, 2016

I've never been good with words You know, the ones that crawl up your throat From the oxygen and thought that surfaces in your lungs And circulates in your brain Reverberating from the chords of your...

Even at night, thats always thought to be dark, the light penetrates the darkness like the ray of hope illuminating desperate times. I was outside of my home after coming back from a family dinner. It was then that I looked up and the moon just seemed so full of light.  -David Park

Through the Clouds

Fly too high and you’re bound to choke Gas mask on still breathing in smoke Father named Daedalus A proud kingdom crumbles to dust You were having fun but then the lights went down You woke up hazy...

I saw a small puddle of water, and didnt think anything of it. Walking by it, these colors caught my eye. I was in a shopping mall parking lot, of all places, and just wanted to go home, but I had to stop and take a picture of this. The colors blend beautifully and brightened up my day. - Lacey Ewers
