You may have noticed that England was the only team from our little group of islands to qualify for the Football World Cup in South Africa, so this little project will have probably have no appeal to the Welsh, Scottish and Irish footie fans among you.

But from now until the quarter finals (when England will probably lose on penalties to the Germans), the flag of St George will be everywhere so why don't you give yourself a little project while you have the chance?

Shoot the flag

Gear
Anything goes. Your DSLR will be the camera of choice but you decide to shoot everything with a LensBaby, a fisheye lens or even use film in a Holga 120 camera.

Technique
The skill here is seeing the picture – and as the subject is a white flash with a red cross, it is difficult to miss. More fun is to be had by looking for unusual places where you might see the flag, or by only using one lens, viewpoint or treatment. You could, for example, only photograph the flag on houses, on cars or on clothing (obviously, for this one ask permission first!)
