The Red Scare??
For me, the macro-lens was a good choice to purchase. For the viewer of this blog?? Well, there are going to be a lot of macro pictures from now on as I learn what makes a good subject, and what does not.
I could make all sorts of deep and poetic statements about my subject choice here. I could link the dominoes to life and make many, many corny comments as I compare the two. I'll spare everyone here and not do that today. I'm better than making obvious and trivial comparisons between serious topics such as life and a traditional game.
Let me try some intellectual comparisons instead. Actually, I use dominoes as a visual teaching tool when I discuss the Cold War and the spread of Communism throughout Eastern Europe. I also use the same visual above to discuss the dangers that existed with McCarthyism. Linking important historical information with a common visual helps students understand the material and apply it to real world happenings. Are you able to make the comparisons I speak of using the domino?
