Micro-project: I challenged myself to try to capture the essence of families enjoying the 4th of July, American Independence Day, at a local lake. I am using the photo app, Hipstamatic, as a method of creating the sense of vintage sensibility. The title, “I’m afraid of Americans” is a song by David Bowie which captures a bit how I feel about going to my local lake. Although I live in a small town, I really don’t know anyone. So,

I’m afraid of Americans
I’m afraid of the world
I’m afraid I can’t help it
I’m afraid I can’t . David Bowie. 1997.I’m Afraid of Americans.
