One day I will take a Karin Jurick workshop!
When we were in New Zealand in March and April, we visited an island bird sanctuary called Tiri Tiri Matangi. Lots of schools take groups of kids there on field trips as they have a lot of native birds there that are very threatened. As we were getting ready to leave on the ferry, these kids from Parnell school were killing time by "chucking stones into the sea". I took lots of photos of them and was taken with this little boy as he seemed to be a bit left out by the older girls. Note the school uniforms and the hats, a required part of the uniform. New Zealand is right under the hole in the ozone layer and melanoma is a concern there.
