Spent the day with photo students at Vernon Hills High School. Great bunch of students, fantastic teacher, they even have an AP photo class! It’s cool to see an arts program that gives the students so many options. Everything from photo classes that start in the darkroom before heading to Photoshop and Illustrator to jewelry making, pottery and both wood and metal shops are available to the students.
After an absolutely fantastic Portellos cheeseburger and chocolate cake for lunch (thank you JM!) we had a short study hall period before the afternoon classes and I was itching to shoot the big FAA something or another that was located behind the track.
I have no idea what it was but it sure looked cool.
Stefanie Dahlstrom, the photo teacher whose classes I was with yesterday, sent some info about the cool thingy in the photo. It’s a FAA Doppler Visual Omni Range facility...of course.ReplyDelete
