Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

What do I feel when I see this picture? I feel like this place is lonely, and nobody goes there at least to visit. Also, it looks like a ghost would live there. The place looks humid, like if it had already rained. The background of this picture is nature. In my opinion, nature is the prettiest thing on Earth, and I love to take pictures of nature because I appreciate everything that we have. I also like this picture because the benches show that the place is a place to visit with your family. But, it looks like not a lot of families have been there because the wood of the benches are rotten, and the grass has not been cut.

Maribel, 8th Grade, Junior Academy, Raul Yzaguirre School For Success [RYSS], Houston, Texas.
