Outside Picture Day

These are two of the pictures that I took outside in Roget today.  I like them both because they both show life and at a different angle.  The first one is looking up at the sun through a tree and the second one is almost like the world at a ant's perspective with all the towering buildings.

Looking In
For my picture I decided to do looking into my junk drawer.  This is a collection of very different items in my room that I don't really need or use anymore, but I still want to keep them.

Color Picture

For my picture that represents color I decided to do my mom's sea shell.  I especially like this shell because of its texture and beautiful neon colors.  This shell was obviously painted, but I think the radiant colors fit it well.

For my picture I decided to do one of a bike wheel.  I like the rubbery grooves that mostly mountain bikes have so I wanted this to become my image of texture.  It worked out even better because this is actually a picture of my sisters new bike that she got today because it is her birthday.

Underneath Picture

For my underneath picture I chose to capture a photo of water or under water. Now obviously I could not take a picture of myself underwater so I thought I could just take a picture of the water itself. I chose this scene because I am in water or under it most of the time when I am swimming and because it can relate a lot to me personally.  If I had more materials or the right materials I would have liked to taken the photo while the camera is submerged underwater so that you could see it from both angles, but unfortunately I do not have a water proof camera.  I hope you like my picture and I am interested to see what my classmates have come up with.

What the World Eats
(Rogate homework questions)
1.     Germany spent the most at around $500, but that could vary throughout all of Germany and even though what other countries spend is smaller in our U.S. dollars it might be bigger there.

2.     It looked to me like families from Italy, the United States, and Mexico consumed the most food.

3.     I think that the Melander family of Germany had near the most because they had over 50 glass bottles of beer, wine, and other liquids, but the Revis family from the US had the most packaging.

4.     I think the Mendozas family from Guatemala was the healthiest because they had so many fresh vegetables and fruits. It was not the traditional meal you would find in a Shoprite or Bj’s.

5.     I think that the Aboubakar family of Chad had the least healthy diet because there were no vegetables or any kind of protein so I don’t see how that will support their dietary needs.

6.     It is hard to tell how wasteful families are because you don’t know if they will actually eat all the food spread out on that table, but it is very easy to say that people in places like Haiti or Chad are not wasting the small amount of food they have.

7.     I was surprised that a family in Greenland caught their own food, a seal, before they ate it. That is not anything I have ever done before, but it is something that I would be willing to try.

8.     One picture that interested me was the one where the food was delivered by bicycle in the Weitaiwu village in China. I guess that the nearest shop or market wasn’t too far away from the house.

9.     My family’s diet was similar to some of the diets depicted in the pictures, but a complete juxtaposition to others.  I have never really thought about how much food I actually eat in a week by adding it up, but I know it is definitely not like what they get in some of those third world counties. I think it is kind of in the middle or not on either extreme end.
