Yesterday my group just took pictures of ourselves. It actually was the easiest of day so far for the Red String Project for me because we knew what the pictures should be looking like and we were not having too explain it to anyone. We went to the bus parking lot and went on one of the buses because the doors were open. Claire and Caity modeled and I think some of the pictures turned out cute, it was hard to tell though because the sun was shining through the bus in some photos.

Yesterday we were able to get a lot of pictures of teachers, which was interesting because we had photographed more students than teachers before. The teachers were all very nice to us even though we were catching most of them during their lunch break. Most of them didn't really want to get creative with their poses! haha

This weekend I summoned my neighbor and took photos or her (our) cute little miniature doxie. This doxie was very obedient and I got a lot of great shots of it with the string. Likewise, at church I got a lot of great photos of my friends from Bishop (Cara and Aine Mills). During the school week my group and I took photos of Mr. Gurlock, Mr. Barry, Mrs. Rafferty, and myself.

This weekend, I got photos of the children I help teach at church. The teacher I'm working with (and my own my aunt) didn't exactly understand the concept, so she told me to get the whole class at some points. They weren't very good... and this one random guy just came inside and posed behind them, so I guess that was pretty cool. I only got one good photo since the kids were a bit rowdy. Oh well! They're so precious!!!

My group took some photos of Sister Anne and she came up with something really creative! She knitted the red string into a crochet pattern and then at the end she untied it just by pulling both ends! It was really cool and the pictures came out great.

Last week I had a mini photo shot with one of my sisters, Caroline. I wanted to get my other sister also, but she was at basketball practice. I always love photo shots, but unfortunately this one was cut short because the sun set. Luckily I got some quality shots before it was dark outside. I'd say the sun looks pretty artsy in the background of some of them. My sister loves modeling so she was happy to be included in the solidarity project. Also I thought it was good to included future bishop students to continue the them of solidarity.

Good job on the posts guys! Do you think people are "getting it"? The idea of connection and community that is. Discuss

I have really enjoyed "stringing' up teachers and students I don't know very well. It has a nice mix of awkward and funniness to it. I like to see peoples personalities come alive when the lens is pointing at them.

My group got photos of some kids at lunch. We pulled Carolyn O'Halloran and Ralph White out to take some single shots, since those usually turn out better than the group shots we've tried. Not only do our 'models' enjoy the photoshoots and come up with cool ways to use the string but also I think they understand how it will all go together in the end and will really appreciate the piece when it is completed!
