Tips: You are going to need a camera for this mission. You could use a digital camera, or try and get your hands on an instant film camera so that you can make an instant collage.
Geography: Photographs can change how people see, think about, feel and experience places. News photographers tend to take photos of things that are going bad while travel magazine photographers look for the very best in places. By choosing your photos carefully you could influence how people feel about your local area.
When you explore and take your photos ask and try to answer lots of different questions. Can you think of things that make your community distinctive? What evidence is there of different cultures (if any) in the types of restaurants, grocery stores, architecture, religious buildings, or languages on signs? How do people move around your community? What transportation routes connect your community with other communities? What is wrong but right and what is right but wrong in this place?
Risk overall: Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.
