Week 44, Assignment 3 for Take A Class With Dave and Dave.


Peace on Earth. These are the images chosen by people rejecting a Christian Holiday, but who still want to send out cards. Also, this will give us a chance to be creative and stray from the overall Christmas theme. Show us image of Peace or peacefulness. Bonus points for images appropriate for Holiday cards.


I started this assignment with a completely different idea. The concept for this shot evolved from those first shots, which I really wasn't 100% happy with. They were nice enough, but didn't have the impact that I wanted. I really love how this shot turned out and I'm glad I took a few set-up shots for this as well, it being a last minute idea and all.


I asked my neighbor Ed to come over so I could take some shots. He laughed at me and shook his head as he is known to do when he thinks I am crazy, but being the fantastic neighbor he is, he agreed. I'm glad he did because he was pivotal to the concept I was working on.


I really love the fact that I am finally living in a neighborhood where I have "real" neighbors. Neighbors who will help you out even when they think you are crazy and who will check in with you if they don't see you for a few days.
