Photo Friday: Photos Framed by Ruth Thomson
Haven't celebrated Photo Friday lately, so here's a great recommend. Photos Framed by Ruth Thomson is captivating. Think of the world's most memorable photos, and then child appropriate descriptions of the image, the photographer, and general photo thoughts. There are Blow Up and Zoom In notes as well to spur further thought and discussion.
From "Louis Daguerre" photographed by Jean-Baptiste Sabatier-Blot to Steve McCurry's "Afghan Girl" this is a beautiful collection of the world's 27 iconic photographs. Ruth's accompanying text is completely absorbing. Like me, you probably won't be able to put it down. The Older Sibs of your totz will be engaged.
