Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/180

On the afternoon I took this shot I had come home to find my kids all dressed up. At the mention of a photo session my daughter suggested the high school as a setting. When I saw the challenge for this week I couldn't resist submitting this shot. I desaturated and adjusted the RGB Levels for a vintage B&W quality. I borrowed the title from an old Paul Simon song.

Like this study of hangin' out at school. Nice use of shadows, reflections in the glass and placement of the subjects.

Good connection with the challenge. I don't see a natural point of focus or path for the eye, which might cause the viewer to think "what am I supposed to be looking at?"
