You may sense a theme -- at least in the first few shots...
July 2: All men are created equal.
I have a full size, framed replica of the Declaration of Independence, and no wall space left to hang it -- darn photography hobby! This is my favorite line from the document -- it is the foundational idea that became the promise of the United States of America.
July 3: I have a collection of various American flags, and I break them out each Independence Day. I decided to try a reflecting shot of old Betsy Ross against the glass on the frame of the Declaration of Independence. This shot was much harder to get than I thought it would be.
Old Glory: 50 Stars, 13 Stripes
The Grand Union: The first flag of the United States of America. The Union Jack in the corner wouldn't last much longer.
Betsy Ross: The thirteen stars in a circle were to represent a new constellation.
July 5: I have a soft spot for Candy Land. Our family has spent countless hours on the sweet and sticky trail to the Candy Castle. It's the game that can be played by the entire family, almost without exception.
Be sure to check back next week when, for your viewing enjoyment, I present: Paint Drying!
July 7: Here's out newest favorite back yard past time. Did you know that dragonflies are EXTREMELY attracted to a shuttlecock flying through the air? Me either, until last night.
They came from four counties away, and buzzed the tower repeatedly.
Driving home from dinner, I snapped a quick shot over my shoulder -- Emma was rocking to Bon Jovi's "It's my life."
She loves that song.
Can you tell?
