This past week, DD was busy setting up all kinds of staged photos to illustrate various passages from To Kill a Mockingbird. As part of this English class project, she took artistic photos around our neighborhood, set up a mock jail cell, and photographed interesting objects to symbolize themes in the novel.
I thought the project was relatively "highbrow" until Sunday evening, when I passed through the dining room and caught a glimpse of a most unusual photo shoot: DD had carefully posed Lily at a make-believe tea party, complete with antique dishes, to illustrate the following passage:
“After all, if Aunty could be a lady at a time like this, so could I.” (Scout, To Kill a Mockingbird)
In fact, Lily was the perfect lady. And DD got an A.
