Noah's Field Trip

Noah's EXCEL class went on a field trip last Friday. They are studying architecture, design, engineering, etc. You know all the fun stuff that is right up Noah's alley. The field trip took them all over the Portland area, those kids and chaperones did a TON of walking that day. Their goal was to find, admire, explore and enjoy what this area has to offer up for examples to reinforce what they are learning. Portland did not disappoint! The Marshall House in Vancouver, St. John's Bridge, Convention Center, top of the Hilton Hotel, the old Meier & Frank building, the OHSU campus name just a few places they got to visit. Noah had my camera with him and took pictures of what caught his attention. I'm proud of his eye, he's practicing, learning, finding fun ways to convey what he sees. There are a lot of pictures in this post - enjoy! And if you have a minute, let Noah know which photo you like best.

I personally like the photo of St John's Bridge, but I think by favorite "item" is the hinge! How intricate and detailed that is for a hinge!

I know! The hinge is beautiful.

Awesome job, Noah!! They're all most excellent! If I have to choose a favorite, from an architectural angle, I think it has to be Balconies...love it. But I have to agree with Shana...the hinge is just incredible!
