Yesterday I had a meeting with DD Alex's guidance counselor at high school. She is a senior and the meeting is to give you a chance to see current class rank, GPA, sign a million forms, make sure her name will be correct on her diploma and give information on scholarships. So DD tells her couselor...I want to go to Virginia Commonwealth University......to study ...and I am waiting to hear the thing she wanted to be for years (well ever since she could not actually be a mermaid or princess) an marine mammalogist. So I am waiting to here it...and she says....to study photography/filmmaking:shocked025: Where did that come from. I should have know, she asked for a nice DSLR for Christmas this year. I think she has talent (of course I am her Dad) and the desire to do well in the area..she has filled our desktop computer with photos. She spent hours doing macro with the Lumix on water spiders at our family cottage. This sort of makes sense...now I will have to get recommendations from the usual lot...guess to hear a bit of debate about Nikon v. Canon etc. So idears? Guess I should contact the school to see about recommendations.
