I was stumped with this assignment until a friend suggested that I photograph a flag. Duh! I'm a history teacher but didn't think of that subject on my own! Sometimes the obvious alludes me. The photo above is with double exposure and with a filter..so please click for better viewing. The image below was taken by my friend Nicole. I'll only take credit for the filter. The larger than life flag was hanging over a Scotia street. I like the rainy day and the oil filter that I added. Again, please click for better viewing.

The image below was an experiment of mine that didn't really 'take off'. I wanted to take photos of street life/city life. I went out early, with my camera, in hopes of finding people at bus stops, walking the streets, going to church, walking in a park, etc. My plan was hampered by the fact that people were not out and about! at all! I like the image below because it is exactly what I wanted. I wanted an 'old feel' and I wanted blurry photos. I like photos of street life where the subjects are blurred and where the color of the photo is 'off'. I hope to get back to this style of photography soon.
