Happy 4th of July!


There’s just something about the 4th of July that I love.

I’m not even a big fireworks guy – I don’t like the crowds, they scare my dogs.

But the day itself exemplifies summer to me.

So, I hope to get out and enjoy the day today.

This is one of my favorite American Flag images.

I shot it on July 4, 2003, when my not-my-wife-just-yet and I were living in San Francisco. We took an evening Blue & Gold Fleet cruise around San Francisco Bay and watched the fireworks from there.

I had my little 4 mp Canon A80 camera with me. It was cold as hell out on the water.

But we had a good time.

A year later – possibly the worst year of my life because of the job I had – she would be my wife and we’d be driving through Montana on the 4th of July, heading back to New Jersey and a new job that awaited me.

Next year, remind me to post one of my other favorite 4th of July photos.

Happy Birthday, America!
