Freedom is ringing!



We are celebrating the 4th with family, under this beauty...






"It is the flag just as much of the man who was 
naturalized yesterday as of the men whose people 
have been here many generations."
Henry Cabot Lodge



P.S.  I'm maximizing my posts right now because we're packing 
for a move and a big vacation.  Lots of packing!

I love these shots.. They're gorgeous! I'm Canadian but I love the american flag. I love how everyone comes together with it, it's a uniting flag. I live in the province of Quebec and I hate how flag raising is such a politically charged thing. Can't raise the red maple leaf or the fleur de lys without someone going beserk. : (
Good luck on your move!

Love that first shot! Is the sunflare at the bottom an overlay? Either way, it's cool. :)
