We love photos in Happenings and we’re guessing all our fellow bloggers do, too. They help tell the story, add visual interest and catch readers’ attention. So we wanted to give a shout out to the folks in Student Life who sent us a nice one recently. They knew the two ingredients they needed in the shot — Chapman people and the special place. They got both in this photo. Granted, all settings aren’t as picturesque as the Capitol, but if you have a moment before you snap the shot, look for something — a sign, a distinctive display — that says something about where you are and put your happy Chapman smiles there.

It just took a minute and then … voilĂ ! A nice photo for the folks back home.
