Phot Essay by Brady Steffes
Photo Journalism with Mary Weber
My name is Brady Steffes, and over the first week of April my family and I went to Punti Cana in the Dominican Republic. We also went with two other families that are good family friends. Out of all the trips that I have been on, which is five, this one was by far the most fun. There were so many interesting and new things that I saw down there. The resort we stayed in was called Ocean Blue and Sand. I wish I could show you more of the resort in my essay because it was huge, but you will get to see the main part of it, and how it had a town like feel to it. As you go through my photo essay you will see the huge lobby that they had. You will also be able to see parts of pictures that will show you how beautiful if was there. As you look through my photo essay you will also see the wonderful western looking style restaurants that they had there. The restaurants served a variety of foods such as steak, pasta, burgers, and Mexican. All of the restaurants that you will see in the photo essay were restaurants that I was able to eat at. Although I would have loved to show you much more in my photo essay, I hope with the little bit that I was able to show you made you realize how wonderful and cool of a place the Dominican Republic really is.
