Foto’s Blog: Framing their photos in India

NEW Phodographer Coleen McIntyre in Chennai, India, Oct. 2010

American Coleen McInyre (seen upper left) teaches 3rd grade at the American International School in Chennai, India. She and fellow teachers volunteer at the small House of Hope orphanage every Wednesday. Many children are tsunami orphans, and all have been rescued from desperate circumstances. Their lives have been transformed and they have been given a real hope for the future. They are fed, cared for and educated.

Coleen took brightly colored papers, markers, and glitter so they could create frames for their new Dog Meets World pictures. Coleen said, “The kids, ages 6-18, all loved the project. As the first picture printed I said “Yellow, Red, Blue… Magic!” to explain that it needed to go through the printer a few times. One of the youngest boy, Wung, who seemed to be the most fascinated by the printer sat so patiently waiting for his picture to be printed. I think for about 10 or so prints he sat there and watched saying “Yellow, Red, Blue…. Magic!”… sooo cute! The cook at the house and Nisha the woman who runs the place also joined in. They were so very excited. I think the cook was the most excited. It was a wonderful evening full of smiles and fun!” Read more on Coleen’s blog.
