This was taken during a Lambert JV football game last season, and it captures the point of view of a football player during a pinnacle point in the game. -Kate Shadburn

My Life as a Student

Kelly Yoon, News Editor May 17, 2016

Monday, I should wake up early and go to school Or should I go back to bed with the cookies I stole Tuesday, I’m set and ready to go It’s a great day until I spill coffee on myself Wednesday,...

This picture was taken as I drove down the road with one of my closest friends. We had been driving for two hours, aimlessly, without any destination. The sun roof was down, and the sun glittered around us. We had Hey There, Delilah blaring on the radio. The entire moment was perfection. I knew that if I didnt capture the feeling I had right then, that I would lose sight of it, I would forget a moment of such pure joy. I look back at this picture often, recalling the raw feeling of happiness. - Cayla Vanderzanden

Premonition

Samantha Waters, Student Submission, 11th Grade May 16, 2016

Staring into the street, with my eyes blurred from tears, my body went rigid. My hands clasped my mouth to muffle my screams. “Why, why, WHY!” I thought to myself. My sleeves had been coved in...

It was snowing outside and I wanted to get a picture, but I didnt have a phone or camera. I noticed my laptops camera and decided to use that. Problem is, its front-facing, so i had to lean it awkwardly to get a picture. The camera, being low-quality, distorted the image a bit, but it ended up looking better than anything I couldve captured on a phone. -Quinn Forney

Ant Farm

Madeline Laguaite, Feature Editor May 6, 2016

Theresa Williams loved bugs. She liked to watch the way they moved, she liked to watch their interaction with other insects, and she liked to watch their tiny eyes blink. Basically, she enjoyed being crouched...

Adventure is worth while in itself -Amelia Earhart 

 This picture describes an adventure itself. This is when I started to get the hang of wake boarding. It started with lots of attempts of falling and trying my best but then it clicked. I started getting up and moving in and out of the wake like I knew what I was doing. By the end of the day I was getting little jumps down, and to think I was against trying it all along at the start of the day.  -Jake Alesia

On Truth

Will Harper, Student Submission, 11th Grade May 2, 2016

People omit truth all the time The effect is not so sublime. We can’t build faith, we can’t build trust How does a liar feel this lust? Sometimes the truth is too hard to hear So, in...

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

A Bakery in Italy

Faith Settipani, Student Submission, 11th Grade March 30, 2016

He wanted to start a bakery. A bakery in Italy where the walls were draped with luscious green vines and a canal could be seen out the rickety wooden window. He baked for hours: strawberry cupcakes...

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

Olivia Pastore , Staff Writer March 21, 2016

“Are you excited for college?” They all seem to ask me tirelessly, and sometimes I’m afraid to tell them, to let my truth bleed from my mouth: I imagine leaving home almost every day. I...

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.

When Writers Write

Elton Govada , Student Submission, 11th Grade March 10, 2016

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...

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

Things Happen

PJ McBrayer, Student Submission, 11th Grade February 10, 2016

Things happen in people’s lives That completely change them It might be an accident, or the loss of a loved one Or something personal Where your heart breaks into a million pieces Lost and full...

My family and I were driving up to our condo in Breckenridge, Colorado for our family ski trip this winter break. The way the sun was shining through the snow filled clouds struck me as beautiful. Also the way that it looked as if we were driving into an endless sea of snow covered mountains, and away from the busy life of city folk, was calming. The way the car mirror and my dads shoulder are in the picture reminded me of the things I love to do.

Sound of Winter

Hazel Lee, Student Submission, 11th Grade February 3, 2016

The sound of winter sits inside my head The sound of the wind carrying away the fallen leaves As the piercing wind soars up the crevice in my sleeves The sound of white snow silently engulfing...

The picture shows the sun radiating down on one side while clouds shade the other half. I think this is a major choice in life, to choose whether you take the dark path in life or the light path. -Nicole Ross

An Observation of Nature

Emma Cave, Student Submission, 11th grade January 29, 2016

The mist that covers the earth Paints a picture of innocence in the sapphire ether. A landscape above our heads We have yet to set foot on. They turn as fast as time Never the same as they were...
