Patriotic Self-Portrait

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 17 August 2009 in People & Portrait.

The camaera club I belong to is having a summer challenge in the form of a series of 4 self-portraits. Week number 2 was Patriotic Self-portrait. I took a self-portrait and used an image of the Constituion as a texture--my husband's idea!
I chose the U.S. Constitution because it is to it I give my civic allegiance, and I consider it one of the greatest documents in the world.
