FOURTH OF JULY Celebration - USA Photo Collection







I had a very good impression of Boston. It was my
first self-guided long trip to the US and I got a lot
of nice surprises.


America's obsession with the automobile.


I wish I could afford to live in one of these.


Pittsburgh is one of my favourite American cities. The
combination of hills and water makes the cityscapes
very pretty.






History in the air






Monuments












The world needs more of ...






Close-ups






A silver jet!


A rainbow runs through it














Where protesters also call home.


Change is in the air.






Flying the world.

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

It's probably somewhere in the Midwest. I was flying to San Francisco from New York. Unfortunately, the airshow channel was not available during the movie so I wasn't sure where we were flying over.

OMG, I heard that Pittsburgh is one of the most polluted cities in the world?

Anyway, nice shots.

Probably a legacy of the steel industry, which has long left Pittsburgh.

This is not an attack on LA, I love her dearly, but she is more polluted than Pittsburgh.
Great shots. That photo of a photo of Philadelphia before city hall was built is fantastic.
