The July photo blogging challenge theme was Patriotic. I knew I’d have an easy time with pictures for this one, and my problem has actually turned into figuring out which 5 to use.
Let’s start close to my home in Quincy, MA.
The flag was at half mast because we lost a MA soldier in the Marine recruitment center shooting in TN
Here’s a close up from earlier in the month of the Quincy WWI statue
Patriotic books display in the Children’s room of the Thomas Crane Library
Also in the library, my Rosie grandmother-in-law set up a collection box for letters for the troops.
To see lots more patriotic photos and learn more about my grandmother-in-law check out my June post:
Finally, here’s a display in the Union Oyster House celebrating the women of the American Revolution
Union Oyster House is Boston’s oldest restaurant, open since 1826. I was there this month because it’s where we host Boston Women Communicators Summer Social each year.
There we have it! They all unintentionally turned out to be photos taken in MA, despite a trip to NYC this month. I also took some photos of the American and MA flags flying next to each other, and some patriotic themed comics at New England Comics, but when you have too many photos to choose from, some have to get cut.
This monthly photo blogging challenge is facilitated by PJ of the Northeast Bloggers Network.
Thanks for inspiring me to take more photos!
