Thanks be to my poetry professor for letting me take pictures of him! He rocks!

What's better than communicating and passing ideas to a group than teaching, exploring, and analyzing the wise brilliance of one of America's greatest poets, Walt Whitman!

This week was Whitman Week in my poetry class, and the poem on the board is from Song of Myself (a great read I'd recommend to anyone and everyone!)... Walt's philosophy is all-encompassing love, poetry and beliefs that become a vehicle for communication between nature and humanity. Walt is the ultimate communicator.

Thanks for all the comments! Sorry to take so long in responding...schoolwork, and lots of it! ;)

My professor really rocks for modelling for me...and NO, he never writes this much on the board! For Whitman week we sat outside on the grass and talked! THAT is learning...blackboard stuff is...is...naptime! :)

Thanks again, really really appreciate all of you!

And Nshapiro, I'm totally flattered. Thank you :)

This is a great shot--love the panoramic view here which to me makes a statement about the volume of communication. I really thought this would win or at least be top 10--your placement is much too low. And from some of the lower scores, I can only assume people REALLY REALLY interpreted this challenge very shallowly.

This was the most intelligent take on the challenge shot in the entire set (well, maybe except for mine ;-) which was a political/religious statement)

I like the cropping of this, really focuses on the subject without any distractions. I also like the composition a lot 9

Great composition using the rule of thirds. Teaching is also a good subject to show communication.

communicating? or droning on and on... I like your idea, captures the challenge well, like the cropping.

Do they waste your time writing in the blackboard?... do they know fotocopies? and books?
Nice picture anyway! perfect light and composition... maybe a little blured
