1. Identify the photograph with the name of the photographer and the name of the photograph. Write a short description of the subject matter. Then, identify the mood or feeling of the photograph. Please include a link to the photograph so I can easily find it.

2. Write a second paragraph describing the photographer’s use of line, framing, pattern, depth of field or focus, contrast of light and dark, and vantage point or angle of view in the photograph. How do these elements help create the mood or feeling of the photograph?
