CLEVELAND - Famed Hollywood photographer Linda Solomon was in town Tuesday taking shots at the Cleveland Salvation Army. These shots were pictures teaching children how to capture their dreams using photography. She has partnered up with General Motors to bring Pictures of Hope to Cleveland.
"When you can show children that their dreams are important and their dreams are respected it makes all of us feel important," she said. The children wrote down what their dreams were then some read them aloud for others to hear.
"My hope is to be a superhero," said 12-year-old Shaheed Harwick. When I asked him why he said, "I want to be a superhero if people rob houses, snatch purses, and do bad stuff," he said. He hopes to become a police officer.
The GE digital cameras given out will be taken home by the children where they will take the photographs as they go about their daily lives. In November, the pictures will be unveiled at Serpentini Chevrolet and eventually turned into holiday cards. The proceeds from the cards will go back to the Salvation Army Harbor Light Complex.
