Questions for Photos 4 & 5

1. Compare the two photos. What are some similarities and differences?

2. Describe the setting in Photo 5. Do you think the Liberty Bell Pavilion is an appropriate location for the bell? Why or why not?

* The photos on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 4 and Photo 5, but be aware that each file will take as much as two minutes to load with a 28.8K modem.
