Honorable Mention
In this photo, I was heading over the freeway to the metro station in which I saw a man, all alone, walking his bike to the metro also. The time this photo was taken was at 7 am in the morning. This shows the poverty amongst Los Angeles. The fact that people can't afford cars, or have to get up on Sunday at 7 am to go and take the metro to work. It's hard for many people, and the gap between the rich and the poor is only increasing. I talked to the guy after in which he said he works in a small office in Downtown LA. Though before we talked, I took the photo to capture the real life scenario of an everyday working man.
Honorable Mention
I think that this picture is definitely a phenomenon. Because of climate change and deforestation, animals, bugs, and plants are losing their homes and trying to find new homes in other places. In this picture, a beetle is trying to burrow into my mom’s hair. This shows the phenomenon of nature before things like climate change takes over nature.
Honorable Mention
The subject of my photo is a city skyline with clouds over it. It is phenomenal because the lighting gives it an orange haze, and bright yellow clouds are shining through the grey ones.

In this photo, I used the rule of thirds, simplicity, and contrast. The bright colors at the top direct the eye to the city and clouds near the top. The bright golden clouds and orange skyline contrast the dark greys and blacks, making them pop.
Not Selected
This picture shows a representation of phenomena because it shows how the clouds are passing through the sun, and that is phenomenal.
Honorable Mention
This photo was taken in Monistrol de Montserrat, Spain. This picture represents a phenomena because clouds are covering the majority of the landscape which allows the viewer to interpret what is behind the clouds

Not Selected
I believe this image falls into the category of phenomena because it is rare for clouds to be formed in a pattern, and we don't get a lot of cloudy days when the sun is out.

The photo was taken when I was driving home on a rainy day and I saw a rainbow, I didn't have rain drops on my windshield so I took them separately with a piece of paper covered in plastic wrap. This photo relates to the theme because this was a special event because you don't see rainbows often and this was the brightest one I have ever seen. The reason I decided to add more than one rainbow is because there was so many of them but I could only capture one at a time.
Honorable Mention
This is a photo of Skittles that I arranged underneath a piece of glass. The piece of glass was a foot above the Skittles. I put water droplets on the glass. I took an out of focus photo of the water droplets.

This photo shows the phenomena of a convex lens because the water droplets acted like a lens and focused the light reflecting off the colorful bullseye made out of Skittles so that the Skittles would be in focus through the lens created by the droplets.
Honorable Mention
This photo tells a lot - texture and color. This photo was taken at a garden store. It relates to the theme because it contains a lot of color.
Honorable Mention
I took this picture because to me it shows phenomena. It looks impressive because I can use one of my senses to observe the color expanding in the water. Also, I was able to include my favorite color green. As it spreads through the water, it makes cool new patterns. I chose the top view because it shows a view from someone that is tall. To me, this shows phenomena.
Honorable Mention
I believe that the photo relates to the theme of a phenomenon because it shows how sunlight helps people see the world in many colorful ways. Yes, it has rainbows which are not rare however it shows the scientific process in which sunlight and a crystal or white light contribute to the making of the color spectrum, and how we are able to see these colors.

My dream career is to be a musician. I know it’s easier said than done, but I would love to do something I’m passionate about for a living. Growing up, I was exposed to almost every form of music and began to find likings to certain genres. I began performing at the age of 4 and the older I got, the more comfortable I was with different instruments. Also, at the moment I’m writing an album with my friends so that is already working towards it. I’m willing to work really hard for this profession, that way if it doesn’t work out I won’t wish I would’ve tried harder, I won’t have any regrets. I watch videos of the greats every day, to be playing like them, in front of that many people that support you, seems unreal. I want to pursue this career because I feel that it would lift my spirit and it feels good waking every morning with a tough goal in mind. It will keep me productive and busy, which is healthy. In all, this profession would mean the world to me and is something I feel would finally satisfy me. I’ll content with all the work I had put in and be rewarded with an audience that I’ll get to share my music with.
