Sibling Photo Assignment 2016.3: Images of Red, White and Blue #3Siblings

Three color challenge....

Consider the colors red, white, and blue, Construct a photo series using these three colors alone or combined in honor of our nation's birthday. Patriotic pictures are not a requirement. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready for red,white, and blue in any way you see pleasing to the eye.

I visited the Old Mission State Park yesterday, and found some unique images of red, white and blue.

I believe these images honor our nation's birthday, because this area reflects the history of the area I live in, even though, for some Americans, it is rather new history.

The Cataldo Mission is the oldest building in the state of Idaho, built between 1850 and 1853.  This may seem odd to people back east, who often have buildings around them constructed in the 1600's. 

But Idaho is a rather new part of this country, so this mission is our history.

Here are my red, white and blue images from the grounds of the Old Mission State Park.

This is the Parish House, painted blue, with the white clouds and the red chimney and red cherries.

I continued with the cherry theme in the next three photos, capturing the red, white and blue through images of sky, clouds and cherries.

Today my daughter Cosette and I attended Kellogg's Fourth of July parade, and I captured some images of "Joyful Patriotism".
