The final band concert of the 2006-2007 school year for our high school was last night and of course I took my camera along to record the event. My oldest daughter is a senior so this is her final concert of her high school career. Band has been the saving grace of high school for both of my girls. It was the highlight of the day when everything else was going wrong. It was the one class that was interesting when the others bored them to tears. It was a place of refuge where the kids were good and the atmosphere was safe. I want to thank the band teacher for that. He is a real pro.
I love watching band concerts and competitions at the high school level. It gives me hope that this country may still be OK. I love seeing the kids really get into it. Today's pictures are not that good. I am still trying to learn the basics of flash photography. Neither of my girls made the picture cut as they were both pretty much out of range of my flash. But sit back for a moment and think about these kids who are our future. What are kids doing where you are at that gives you hope for the future?
Have a great Wednesday.
This last picture is dedicated to the Seniors who will now move on into a new and different world. Good luck and Godspeed. Thank you for four wonderful years.
