July Photo Challenge ~ Celebration of Freedom

 July Photo Challenge For July we want you to find images that fit the theme: CELEBRATION OF FREEDOM   This subject is meant to be an expansive assignment. It is not meant to be simply about the 4 th of July or political issues. We’re not looking for more flag photos that was the subject of our June assignment.   It doesn’t mean banners can’t be included (see sample image included) but it should indicate the theme of freedom. The images you submit can be focused on freedom of movement, freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want. It could be images of people celebrating freedom. You get the idea.     We would love to have great participation and looking forward to your many interpretation of this topic.   Images (up to 4) are due by July 31st, yet Colleen, who so beautifully arranges our image show, would love to have them in before the last day. So please keep that in mind. Send them to colleen@halleycomm.net . Name them ex. ayost_0

June Photo Challenge Reminder

  Please join in the fun for our June photo challenge. The subject is FLAGS of all sorts.   When we think of flags in June we, of course, think of our own beautiful American flag on June 14th, Flag Day. That is the day when presidents Wilson, in 1916, and Coolidge, in 1927, issued proclamations asking for June 14th to be observed as the National Flag Day. But it wasn’t until August 3rd, 1949 that congress approved the national observance, and President Harry S. Truman signed it into law. (See…. even back then it took a long time to get something passed through congress 😂 )   But, in this case we are asking you to think outside the box and search for unusual flags. OR, all four entries can be American flags if you wish. The choice is yours.  Flags come in all sizes, shapes, colors, materials, and subjects. Here are some samples of unusual flags/flag groupings. Please send up to 4 images to Colleen Reilly (colleen@halleycomm.net) by the deadline June 30th. Please follow this format exam
