07-01-2011, 11:18 AM
Hi members,

hard to believe it's july already - happy canada day ay!

Hey, given that both the USA and Canada celebrate their birthdays in the same week....how about

- Patriotism
- My country
- My country is awesome

for the regular assignment

and Using my country's flag creatively for the level 2 assignment.

Feel 100% free to reject those ideas and suggest others - and the topic(s) with the most support in the next 24 hours will become this month's regular and level 2 assignments.


those ideas work for me :)

Ok then - let's go with My City OR Country for regular and using my country's flag creatively for level 2

Ok then who will post first?

maybe this thread title is too lofty - I'm making the exec decision to choose Country OR city.
I think that might make it more accessible.

I'll go first. The Bluenose is an iconic symbol of Canada- it is on our dime after all! It is currently being rebuilt in Lunenburg Nova Scotia. This is it under construction. On the day I went I was lucky enough that the artist was there as well. I believe he's capturing it as it's being built.

Lovely shot, Bambi!

Across the tall prairie grasses


This shot of downtown Calgary, taken from just above Samis Road is intended to show the juxtaposition of the Old West days when ranching was the mainstay of the city and the new urban centre it has become.

Vikings still roam the streets of Dublin on mass, be careful out there kids. The Vikings, or Norsemen, invaded in the 9th century so I guess this chap is about 1200 years old!

This is the Spire of Dublin, it is Ireland's answer to a question that no one asked. It stands in the center of Dublin and is an odd thing of beauty. It was constructed as part of the rejuvenation of O'Connell street and is located where Nelsons Pillar once stood.

Nice variety members!
Here's mine, caught this one this weekend in Old Montreal. It's a reflection in a puddle.

Cool photos of lots of interesting places.

I think this is the best I have gotten this month of my town. This is overlooking the campus of North Georgia College. The gold steeple is probably about the most familiar landmark in town that sits on top of a building that was built on the foundation of coin mint that was here during the gold rush, which is why the steeple is covered in local gold.

Very cool entries to this thread. I'm loving the gold sky and gold steeple. And the reflection is great - I see you stayed there and worked that location, Marko.
