...a thousand words, a snapshot linky

I'm doing my first photography link up ever. It's my sister's link party. I think it's a fabulous idea. You can read about it here. You can join her every Sunday. She will provide the title of your photo for the following week and your job is to find the perfect shot. Fun! So, here goes...

"Welcome to the Jungle"

I don't know if I can think of a wilder, more untamed place then the hallways of the high school where I work at passing time. You know, in between classes. In fact, there is one hallway specifically where particularly large crowds of teens tend to gather on a regular basis. I call the groups "people clots". You know, instead of blood clots. Same idea really, but instead of blocking major arteries these guys block the flow of traffic. It's crazy during noon supervision, trying to navigate this gauntlet. It's a big, fat party in the hallway. (I say this somewhat fondly as I love the energy that's always present working at the highschool level. There is always something going on.)

Stop over and have a look!


  1. Oh yeah - that's definitely a jungle. I was with teenagers this past weekend....craziness!

  2. You're right. High school is the closest thing to JUNGLE that you can get around here! I thought pictures of three year olds were pretty spot on, but HIGH SCHOOL?

  3. :) They are crazy, I know, but I love them!

  4. Very funny, great perspective.

  5. What a jungle!! I can't help but chuckling at the kid with one pant leg rolled up and the other down - is that really back in style?? Boy I feel old, if that's already had time to go out and come back in :)
