Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
~Sir Walter Scott
The words of Sir Walter Scott speak to me as I think of an appropriate challenge for this week. In America, especially in Washington, DC, we are going through one of the exercises in our democracy, the presidential inauguration.
Let's take a step back from the events of Inauguration Day and focus on the broader theme, Patriotism. How would you illustrate the concept?
Remember, these photo challenges are broad to give you wide latitude to be creative. I plan to go find something in Washington, D.C., on Monday that speaks to me, and I will post it then. Those of you in other countries, I'm looking forward to seeing how you share your own, your native land.
Patriotism. Post early and often.
