This is really one of the best TED videos I have seen in a long time (and that is saying something). This is such a fantastic talk and every young girl should hear the poem!!! I hope you all enjoy!

Below is another TED video. Its title is “Photos that changed the world.” Changing the world through photography is an interesting notion to me. I have always known that I want to do something to make my community a better place. I chose to do that through politics. It seemed like the most direct route to take.
I find it interesting that other people, with the same goal, chose to take a different route. The route of using photography to impact change did not seem clear to me at first. But the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Photos can tell people about a situation. Photos can motivate the average person in action. Photos can cause people to experience deep emotions. Maybe more so than political speeches or pandering. It is an interesting idea.
So here is the TED video. Do you all think photos can change the world???
This little blog reached 101 comments last night. The winner of the comment contest was my dad (Kevin Barrett) won. Yep, that’s right, my dad won. I’m that cool. My dad reads my blog. He will be getting a Jama Juice gift card in the mail. I was going to get the winner a itunes gift card but my dad doesn’t use itunes….so, smoothies it is. The picture below what google gave me when I did an image search for 101. It’s kinda cute!
I haven’t posted a TED talk in a while. So here is one I just found, it’s about female cartoonists. Hopefully I’ll have more photo shoot stuff soon. If anyone is interested in modeling for a shoot, please let me know!
I’ve been watching some great videos of photograph journalists and how they do their jobs. I found this video on TED (a great obsession of mine). Working for National Geographic or TIME as a photographer is a DREAM job!
Here is a link to a TIME Magazine video about a recent photo project about the Women of Afghanistan. It is a really great video!
