Attempt at Creating Something Different

On Baltimore Street in historic Gettysburg, at the town’s public library, there is a statue of President Abraham Lincoln. On the base of the president’s statue, the words of his speech known as the Gettysburg Address, are inscribed. Certainly, because of the location of the statute, it has had to have been photographed thousands of times per year.

So how do you create something different as an image? Here is my solution:

I cropped in on the statute, trying to use the library building as a backdrop. My second attempt was to include some people reading about President Lincoln. I chose to add them to my composition:

I think these alternative images worked.
