4th of July Celebration, 2010
Happy Independence Day!
A photo from last year’s celebration on the Colorado river near Laughlin, NV, by the Pipa Aha Macav Tribe of the Mojave Nation. A great mix of new and fading fireworks, and if you look closely at the reflection, well, I’ll let you see for yourself…
See you Wednesday!
Half-Staff at Michilimackinac in honor of Reagan's Passing
This picture was taken on June 5th, 2004. I happened to be in Northern Michigan at the time, looking for interesting angles on the Machinac Bridge when I heard Ronald Reagan had passed. Now, I should point out, I may not be a fan of his, but he was a much better and more reasonable person than critics and his supposed partisans make out nowadays. But as I heard the news, a color guard came to lower the flag shown here.
The solitary image of the flag at half-staff at one of America’s great architectural feats seemed an appropriate image to commemorate the passing of an American Statesman.
