Photoj students capture essence of McCallum

After circling the school a few times in order to find the true “essence of McCallum”, I stumbled upon many picture-worthy occurrences, both artistic and academic. What I did not immediately notice, however, was the empty courtyard soaked by the rain: the blue picnic tables, wet grass, and a mural in the background. You can tell by the lights being on in the building that students and teachers alike are hard at work inside, and the energy from within the school is definitely still present,  but in the courtyard it is still and calm. I really like the shallow depth of field in this image and how it shows another side of MAC that I haven’t really paid attention to before. ISO: 1600. Shutter Speed: 1/25. F/Stop: 6.3. Focal Length: 45.
