CHS science teacher, Ms. Thomas, found a unique opportunity to showcase the beauty of change. Over the course of a month, she took a photo of the same Ginkgo tree on campus in the process of changing color.
“We have to try and focus on the beauty around us,” said Ms. Thomas.
“As most of you know, I’ve always loved and photographed our beautiful Ginkgo tree every year!! This year, I decided to document the various stages of her colors, starting on Nov. 7 and proceeding to yesterday. I picked the four best pictures. I love it so much, I thought I’d share it with you” said Ms. Thomas.
Art and photography teacher, Ms. Coulter, meshed the photos together in the heart collage.
Ginkgo trees are renowned for eventually turning into a golden color in the late fall. Additionally, their leaves tend to scar and fall at once leaving a carpet of gold to stomp through (or take that perfect picture for Instagram). Either this tree is on its way to turning golden, or will remain this gorgeous orange.
