I believe this website is credible. It's URL ends in .US .which makes me think the website is a government run website to provide information about Mankato, Maine. I think the purpose of this website is to provide information regarding tourist information. The information along with the pictures do look real and credible. Overall, the website does look credible based on the information and pictures given. The location that the website is also based on is a real place in the United States.
I do not think this website is credible. I think this website is for clickbait reasons only. It is not possible to buy an ancestor that could be blood related to your family. The general aesthetic of the website also looks fake and unfinished. It is also illegal to buy and sell humans yet the website is promoting this. Some of the grammar presented on the website isn't very credible either. An example would be the tap that states, "Babe of the Day". Overall, this website promotes something that is illegal and the general aspect of the website makes me think it isn't credible.
I do think this website is credible. The URL ends in .Org which means this is an organization run website. The website home page has a signature from a doctor to sign the initial letter off. there are also a surplus amount of tabs to support the foundations mission statement. The general aspect of the website also looks eye appealing and thought through. Overall, I think that the foundation is credible, even though the topic is a little strange.

I chose to execute the panoramic sequence photo trick using the camera on my phone. The subject is my brother and the setting is my kitchen. I had my brother pose in four different stances while I continuously took a panoramic picture. I started from the left of the frame and had my brother start his first pose. Once the camera passed his stance, I had him run around the back of me to pose for a second time. I made sure he changed one aspect of his pose from the last. He changed the angle of his stance. After the camera passed his body for the second photo, I had him run around me and pose for a third time, then again for a fourth time. Each pose is a little different. The purpose of choosing this camera trick is to show my littler brother in his funny state. I do enjoy the final product because I think it is funny as well as interesting, but, his hand got cut off in his third pose. Due to the panorama camera being difficult to keep still, my brothers hand got cut off in the process of making the photo. Another aspect of the photo I would change would be the setting. I would have liked to take the photo outside with a greener background and better lighting but the weather didn't allow for that to happen. Other than the setting and the third pose, I enjoy how the picture came out!

I used leading lines to direct all three of these photos. In the first photo, the rail of the boardwalk, the boardwalk itself, and the clouds act as the leading lines. The rail of the boardwalk coming in from the bottom right corner of the photo guides the viewers eye directly to the subject which is my friend leaning on the rail. The actual boardwalk itself coming from the middle of the left side of the photo also naturally guides the viewers eye directly to the subject. There are also clouds at the top of the photo which naturally direct the viewers eyes to the other subject of the photo which is the sunset. The second photo also has leading lines directing eyes towards the subject. The tiles located on the ground naturally lead the viewers eyes towards the three subjects in the center of the photo. Although this photo doesn't have many examples of leading lines, the tiles on the floor act as the perfect natural leading line to guide the viewers eyes in the right direction. The last photo also uses leading lines. The natural leading line of the sand dunes and the beach itself make the eyes follow their path into the distance. The dunes and the beach enter from the bottom of the photo and guide the viewers eyes to the point of curve in the beach. As for how I like the photos, my favorite would be the sunset photo. I feel like I utilized leading lines the best in this photo by making the subject lean on the boardwalk and have the sunset be framed by clouds. The line of the rail acts perfectly as a leading line. I also like the other two photos but the first photo would have to be my favorite.
