One Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their homes and community with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art.
This month’s words were selected by Sue. They are: nostalgia, season, celebrate and Red, White, and Blue!
Nothing brings me home like a good board or card game. I am enjoying these summer nights, playing cards after dinner and walking Nelson. The fireflies come out and our yard puts on a show.
They don’t joke around about this being the garden state. I’ve never seen such color.
This is is the season for blooms, moss, and rain.
High five! One of many public pieces of art in Morristown, NJ.
Red, White, and Blue!:
I dare say there is nothing more patriotic than the man who could have been king, but opted for democracy instead.
