Digital Citizenship: Steampunk Photo Challenge

Dear Students,

I visited the Gilbert Historical Museum and I thought of you. The ones that like to take pictures and those of you who like to draw and create

Farm equipment, front of Gilbert Historical Society

if I was a designer I would take pictures and use them to make steampunk inspired art like this

a gate designed by Antoni Gaudí – in Barcelona

if I knew photoshop, I would play with the details

I love the color and the spiderweb of the glass

you could invent a tree house

you could turn this farm machine

I imagine this as a spaceship, blasting into the clouds

into a spaceship

if you knew how
