Dreams in People

by Samantha Balsino


I designed my Dream Center Logo around pictures. I had asked a couple random people what their dreams were now or what they were when they were little. I decided to do pictures because that is what my dream is, to take photographs of people’s lives. I thought it would be different if I had my seven different colors take up half of the page and connect different dreams/ pictures to them. I have dream bold and in black just to get the point across. In my first picture I have a couple holding hands because one girl said her dream was to fall in love and start a family. My second picture has to do with dedication; a guy from my work said that he puts in a lot of hard work, dedication, and determination to get to where he wants to go. Therefore the picture of the ballerina just looked like she had put in a lot of hard work and practice to get to be able to do that move. My third picture is of the Eiffel Tower because my best friend Lorraine’s dream is to travel and see the whole world. My fourth picture is of a little boy dressed up in a Policeman’s costume because when you are younger you always have dreams of what you want to do when you grow up. My fifth picture is of a soccer player because I have a kid in my class who is on the NAU football team. His dream is to give his sport all he can and if possible work hard enough to go further than college. My sixth picture has to do with my dream of becoming a well known photographer. I hope one day that I am able to capture people’s pictures and other’s can look at it and have some sort of idea how that person felt at the time or sense part of their personality. My last photo has to do with music. There were so many people who considered music to be part of their dream. Some were either playing instruments, others were in a band trying to get there music heard, and last some just loved music so much that they looked towards it to help them move forward whenever they were stuck along the way to finding their dreams.
