My name is Jia Garcia and I am nine and in the third grade at St. Rose of Lima. I like taking pictures because it is fun. I do not own a camera, so I use my itouch which was given to me by my grandpa for Christmas. I am also a IPC Visual Lab student who enjoy making pretty pictures. I want to share my visual world with the pictures that I am making while attending photo classes.
“Lady Geisha,” Miami, Florida 2010 -- Geisha is our three year-old bull terrier. She is resting after running around and chasing lizards all day at her favorite spot in our house, our living room couch. I thought Geisha was cute resting on the couch. So I got my itouch and slowly moved to make this picture. Do you think she is cute? I love Geisha because she listens and is a good girl. We adopted Geisha from the Human Society in 2010. This was made after four months of Geisha’s arrival.
“Nosy Geisha,” Miami, Florida 2011 - Geisha places her nose inside a hole while searching for lizards. My mother sometimes yells at Geisha because she misbehaves. It makes me feel sad for
her because I know that she is a good girl.
“Shapes and Circles,” Miami, Florida 2011 - This the last picture taken of my grandpa’s outdoor table. I was looking for shapes around my house to photograph and notice the squares, rectangle, and two circles formed by the tiles. I am happy that we have this picture because it was destroyed by workers removing tree. Part of the tree fell on the table splitting it in half.
“Antique Times,” Miami, Florida 2011 - This my mother’s favorite picture because her best friend gave her this antique
phone as a gift before I was born. I was walking around our house looking for shapes and numbers. The phone caught my eye, but I did not like where it was. So, I move it to clean the background so that the phone can stand out.
“Mr. Blue,” Miami, Florida 2011 - My pet peacock is named “Mr. Peter.” I love his colorful feathers. I was asked to make a photo of him. I saw his blue and green colored feathers so I walked close to him and zoomed in . Blue is my favorite color. What is yours?
