One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge

One-to-three is a monthly photo processing challenge on my other web site, theSquirrelChase.com. I’d love to have you join in: The challenge is simple: take one photo and get creative with it by processing it three different ways. Then share the results, with a link in the comments to this month’s post. I’ll do a start up post on the first of each month, including a round up of entries from the preceding month, so we can all share in the creativity and fun.

Here’s my September 2022 contribution:

Shockingly similar

This was on today’s New York Times cover:

This is photo of the Taliban in 2021:

This past few days I’ve been impressed by the similarities between the supported of the former president and the Taliban, a jihadist group of insurgents. The images are certainly similar but so are many of the tenets.

We need to recognize this and call out the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers and Boogaloo Boys and similar groups as what they are: jihadist insurgents. They are anarchist terrorist gangs.

They are not “nationalists”. They are anti government. They are not “conservative”. They are radical reactionaries. They are not Christians either; they do not follow the teachings of Jesus. If you don’t believe me, read the book of Matthew Chapters six and seven, a.k.a., the Sermon on the Mount.
