1 Photo From Each Summer Project Day I had a Camera

I chose 1 picture from each day of photos I took to highlight certain aspects of the Tribeca Summer Project of the Epic Track. It was hard to pick just one picture for some of the days. I think I took over 8 gigs of high res photos over the course of summer project because halfway through the summer, Andrew lent me his D300, which took an average size of 4-5 megs/picture. I digress, enjoy the photos!

Top of the Rock.  The students explored the city and it culminated here.  Everyone barely knew each other.
