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.

    What a beautiful photograph. I would love to have your permission to use it with an article I wrote on eHow. I would replace the one I have there now and use yours instead. Here's the link...check it out and let me know if I can use yours. Regardless, you are taking super photographs and they are a pleasure to look at.

    Greetings from the Goshen (Ind.) College Public Relations Office! We are currently launching a new website called that promotes and spreads peacemaking activities by inviting visitors into conversation about what peace is and asking them what they are making peace with. We hope it all inspires a new kind of peace movement by connecting, educating and inspiring people who are passionate about peace.

    The website includes a section called “Visualize Your Peace,” which gives artists the opportunity to upload artwork that depicts peace in various ways. And this is why we are contacting you. Please consider posting your images on the site (including this remarkable photograph) as a way to help others explore different representations of peace.

    Thank you for spreading peace in this way. To continue the promotion of peace, please encourage your friends and family to also visit the site and join in the dialogue at!
