In a New Light Pioneers: Travis, 16 - "The Family"
This picture is of the first black bear I have ever seen. It means a lot because it is a family of black bears. It also shows the love of a mother watching over her cub. The experience for me was stunning. It took my breath away. I never thought in my life that I would ever see a black bear. But I did, and it wasn’t only a black bear, but it was a mother with two cubs.
About Travis: "My name is Travis. I am a junior at Fond du Lac High School in Fond du Lac. Even though I have made mistakes in my life, I would like to go to college and become a photographer. Photography means a lifetime for me. It means being able to explore nature at its best, and also just having fun. I like photography because I am able to be alone and do something to get my mind off everything ."
