I took this assignment a little more literally than I had originally intended. Independence on a very personal level is the freedom I feel physically and mentally when I go for a long walk. This past Saturday as I walked to my car, I saw a Civil War reenactment. I ran home to get my camera because ultimately, without the freedom that has been fought and continues to be fought, I could never know independence.
I decided to extend that independence and exercise some of the techniques I am learning in my photoshop class. I welcome comments, feedback, and critique! Happy Monday!
