Direct Flash / Bounce Flash Assignment

These are the two photos I am turning in for my single flash assignment.  One photo had to use direct flash and the other had to use a flash bounced off of a surface.

Last night, I went to the Laws Observatory on campus and took some photos while bouncing the flash off the dome.  And, as an added bonus, I got to look at the rings of Saturn through a huge friggin telescope!
