With the 2008 Summer Olympic Games just around the corner, it seems like a good time to post some photographs with an athletic theme. There are so many sports and games we play, that I could fill up the rest of this year's Foto Motivo with nothing but athletic imagery. So here's a few, both current and archived.

the cross

My title for this post is "the cross", because as a Christian, it's a symbol of the cross that Jesus Christ was crucified on. There's plenty of controversy surrounding religious symbols and where they may be placed. Some people find the cross offensive, which I find hard to believe. But these images were all shot on church property at various locations around Southern California.

With the passing of the July 4th weekend, I felt it would be appropriate to post some patriotism for the U.S.A. There are many ways to show loyalty to our country, but the most obvious is through the open display of the red, white and blue colors of our flag. God bless America!
