Symbols of Hope in Germantown

On Sunday January 30th I went into Germantown with my classmate Sara. We parked in Mount Airy and walked south on Germantown Avenue. During our walk, we encountered many images that evoke “hope.” Here a few of my favorite images that I captured on my Canon Powershot camera:

One response to “Symbols of Hope in Germantown

  1. Hi Emily,
    I love the first two photos, especially the one with the King quote and the books on the bottom. The photo screams out “hope” and has interesting composition. Save that one, which may be very useful when we do our final project.
