Sophomore Class Field Trip

Last Friday, I went on my sop­ho­mo­re class field trip to the Struthof Nazi con­cen­tra­ti­on camp in France. It was pret­ty cool, and a gre­at pla­ce to ta­ke pic­tu­res. The camp is split up in­to three parts. The first part is the main building/​museum, with exhi­bits and mo­vies sho­wing. The se­cond part is the ac­tu­al camp it­self, with bar­racks, a scaf­fold, and the crematorium.

The bar­racks has been tur­ned in­to an exhi­bi­ti­on of li­fe in the camps, with dra­wings, pic­tu­res, and ar­ti­facts on dis­play. In the cre­ma­to­ri­um, we weren’t al­lo­wed to ta­ke pic­tu­res, but the­re was an oven, a few pri­son cells, and an exe­cu­ti­on room.

After that, we went do­wn the hill a ways and ca­me to the gas cham­ber. It was a small buil­ding with a smo­ke stack co­ming out of the si­de, fai­r­ly non-​discreet. Inside, it on­ly had about three rooms, two of them with stora­ge free­zers to hold bo­dies and bo­dy parts for experimentation.

It was a very so­be­ring, yet good experience.

See the pic­tu­res he­re (all pic­tu­res are full re­so­lu­ti­on 3008x2000px.).

More Photos (Overdue)

I fi­nal­ly got my pic­tu­res from the Christmas Banquet and from December up on the gal­le­ry. There are still so­me that we­re ta­ken on the last days of school that I’ll need to get, so they mig­ht be a while.


Thankgiving Pictures

Yeah, so what if we had it on the 13th? Since I hadn’t pos­ted the­se yet, I fi­gu­red to­day would be as good as any to put them up. Taken with a D70 with a 18-​50mm f/2.8, the sa­me one I took the­se shots with.


During our long three day wee­kend on the 14th, I got a D70 with an 18-​50mm f/2.8 lens for ta­king pic­tu­res of Thanksgiving din­ner (I know, worng ti­me, but that’s when we did it). I used it to get the shots I’ve been dieing to get for a whi­le. I feel li­ke I succee­ded in that respect.

Note: I uplo­a­ded the full si­ze pic­tu­res (3008×2000px.) this ti­me. You can get the high res ver­si­ons by clicking on the me­di­um si­ze picture.

Vieil Armand

Last Friday, our freshmen class went on a field trip to the WWI tren­ches on a hill in Haut-​Rhin, ne­ar whe­re my pa­rents li­ve. The we­at­her was hor­ri­ble. It was cold and rai­ny, and my socks we­re damp. Was pret­ty de­pres­sing. But, I got to bring al­ong one of the yearbook’s ca­me­ras; their old Nikon D1x with a 50mm f/1.8 pri­me on it. It re­al­ly sucks bat­te­ry li­fe and two of the three bat­te­ries that I broug­ht didn’t work, so I couldn’t shoot at the end of the trip. There we­re ti­mes when I wis­hed I had a lon­ger fo­cal length, but in ge­ne­ral, the pri­me sa­tis­fied my needs. I’ll get the pic­tu­res up in the gal­le­ry even­tu­al­ly. EDIT: They are now up.
