Mattapan, MA 030310 Rebecca Michel Francois (cq), 9. She and other Haitian children recently arrived in the Boston Metro area. At her new school, teh Charles Taylor Elementary in mattapan, she can be found behaving like another kid as she plays jump rope with classmates on March 3, 2010. BEHIND THE SCENES: Due to recent earthquake in Haiti there has been an influx of Haitian children ending up in the metro area and the Boston Globe has been diligently covering these latest arrivals to Boston. TECHNICAL STUFF: The photo of the girl jumping rope was shot at iso 400, in cloudy setting, with a 24-70mm lens. The other two were probably photographed with the same lens since this is one of two of my main lenses. The airport scene was also photographed with my zoom lens. Please notice the layering in the photo which leads you into the subject but keeps also your attention roaming through the frame.
