Entry No. 55

In lieu of America's Birthday, July 4th, I wanted to curate a photo gallery of Americana/patriotic photos I have taken over the years.

While today, more than ever, I feel like our country is still very much broken---only held together by a wearing bandage.

It's easy to not watch the news in order to turn a blind eye to our problems. However, if we just start by mending our daily interactions with each other & take small-civilized steps further, maybe we can regain our patriotic spirit by coming together again--instead of blowing each other apart {literally & figuratively}.

While there are many days when my American spirit feels tarnished, when I take to the streets, I am still inspired by that 'Americana' aesthetic. It's the simple things really--a cute diner, someone sharing an ice cream cone, a classic car, or the way the light hits a building.

Maybe it's the simple things we need to get back to in order to find our new way in today's America.

Have a safe & Happy July 4th & may you find some inspiration here for your summer adventures.
