I took this photo when my family and I went to view the King Tut exhibit at the California Science Center. I chose this photo because it shows my little brother, Nevan, participating in a hands-on exhibit offered there. He was making a tall tower out of Tinkertoys. He was now part of the shared activity that other visitors built on. Each participant would keep adding and changing the shape of the toys as the day went on. I liked that he was participating in an activity that was shared with so many other people. Museums are a great place for people from all over the world to participate in fun activities.

Participating in the dance of life. I love to do all types of dance. When dancing, I feel fully alive and free. To me this is participating in life to it fullest. I hope this photo shows how joyful dance feels to me. I used a slow shutter speed to capture the spinning motion and panned with her motion to capture the trails of colors.

My photo was taken at Camp Pendleton beach an hour or two before sunset when my brother and I were playing in the water.

I believe my photograph relates to the theme “participate” because my brother is having a fun time and enjoying the beautiful sun and the warm sand by jumping and running round. My brother and I are showing each other our trick that we can do. By participating in this game is how I got this photograph.

The photograph was taken outside, near my home where a Spotted Towhee caught sight of my camera and participated in a staring contest. I held a staring contest with a bird. I believe my photograph relates to this year's contest theme because not only was the bird participating in the staring contest, but I was as well. Through this participation, I believe that others may resonate with the photograph and feel the sensation of being in a staring contest, just as I did.

A couple weeks ago I went on a ten mile hike. I spotted these mushrooms out of the corner of my eye. It was growing on a moss wall next to the path I was on. Even though these mushrooms may look small and unimportant, they are key in participating in the environment. Without the mushrooms, the whole ecosystem would collapse. It reflects on real life, with people. Every person on this earth may seems small and have no effect on the planet, but every person has a role to play, a place to fill. If someone doesn't do their part, like if a teacher doesn't teach the class, then it will fall apart. Our world is like Christmas lights, if one light goes out, the whole set goes. If the mushrooms don't do their part, the moss wall could die.

It's our dog, Zeke, who helps keep critters that could harm our livestock away, for instance, from my chickens. I took this photo on our ranch, near our pond. He does this pose whenever I say "Be Humble." He has two half blue eyes. It was the first snow day we had when I took this picture with my mom's phone. When you are involved (or participating) in a class project, you have to share you're ideas, so "Think it Over" kind of fit well.

My picture represents participation because my friend and I are using teamwork to link up and get the shot. I took this picture with my friend Blake. We went after school when the sun was going down. We got lucky because the water was cool colors and there was no wind, which created this clean look on the water.
