Solargraph by Justin Quinnell
This picture shows each phase of the sun over Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge. This photo was captured from a pinhole camera from renowned pinhole photographer, Justin Quinnell. He strapped the camera to a telephone pole where it was left from December 19, 2007 to June 21, 2008—that’s a 15,552,000 second exposure. The photo shows six months of the sun's trails and its subtle change of course caused by the earth's movement in orbit.
The photographer says the photo took on a personal resonance after his father passed away on April 13, 2007—halfway through the exposure. He says the picture allows him to pinpoint the exact location of the sun in the sky at the moment of his father passing. (Dotted lines of light are the result of overcast days when the sun struggled to penetrate the cloud.)

To become a photographer. I know it sounds cliche, and I know it sounds cliche that I am saying it sounds cliche, but I do find that I go into a different "zone" while I photograph. I also love just walking around and trying to find the perfect thing to photograph. Today my friend and I walked around for 5 hours taking pictures and talking. It was the greatest time. I hope to either be a fashion or a wildlife photographer. If I go into wildlife, I would also want to be a journalist. But I guess it's too far down the road to know...
anyways, here's a link to my DeviantArt. I'd love some feedback from my fellow xangans! If you don't have a DA account, just leave the feedback here. Prints are also available for every picture you see. THANKS SO MUCH, GUYS!
Cord Ivanyi, a Latin teacher, noticed the ways that some boys treated girls in his classroom. It got to be such a problem that he has incorporated etiquette to his class lessons. He first started by opening the classroom door for a girl who was coming back from the bathroom. He makes sure boys pull chairs out for the girls and that boys even stand when a girl enters the room. "We often use the Latin phrase in loco parentis, 'in place of parents,' and sometimes we find that we need to fill the gaps that parents miss," Rosta commeneted to AOL News. "If there are any life skills our teachers can help with, I encourage that."
I feel that this is ridiculous. I think that women shouldn't be revered as higher objects as men, but that women should be understood as different but equal counterparts. This respect shouldn't involve men standing up at a women's arrival or men pulling out chairs if a woman wishes to sit down. Of course everyone should get respect from eachother no matter who they are, but making aparent gender discrimination is not the right way to teach manners to students.
