So here are some photos from last night:

I spent my summer at Camp L’man Achai. L’man Achai is a camp made for non-religious Jewish kids, it’s mission is to give kids some knowledge about Judaism during their stay. For the first Month of Camp I was the Photographer (among other things).  For the month of August though I was a Counselor.

Here are some of the photos I took (more to come):

Today’s typical photographer is a curious being. Cameras are cheap, computers are easy to use, and the Internet makes sharing photos so incredibly easy. So many people are into photography, but I’m willing to bet that over half of us don’t know why we do it or what we’re after.
