Photos by Sarah Handy,
a junior in the Advanced Photography class at Ukiah High School.
"Photography allows you to capture something beautiful and preserve it forever. Every photograph has a story, from what is going on in the scene, to the actions and emotions of the photographer. From a young age, I have always shown an interest in taking pictures. In the evening I'd take my family's little old point-and-shoot camera and take pictures at the creek beside our house. I loved the excitement of figuring out a new or interesting idea and ending up with a great photograph. One of my favorite places to shoot is Wyoming. This show contains a collection of photographs from Jackson Hole, and the small town of Kemmerer. The old ranches and rustic landscape almost seem to be from a different time. Also being able to spend time with family and capturing moments of their lives is truly amazing. I'm so excited to share these pictures with you." Sarah Handy
