This week I was invited to host Images and Words. An honor I gladly accepted and I thank the admins for asking me. I chose independence because of the national holiday we have here in the United States. I know that not everyone here is from the US but every country has an independence day or something similar. Of course the word independence means much more than the day any country declares itself a free or sovereign nation. I hope everyone has fun with the theme this week. That is why we do this, at least it's why I do. It may take me a bit to get around to all the entries due to the holiday weekend here but i will get there. I'm very interested too see all the takes on this theme.
The image I posted is really a collage instead of one single image. The flag, sky and fireworks images were all taken by me. The US outline map is a piece of clip art. The message is simple, have a Happy Independence Day, when ever it is in your neck of the woods! The whole thing was assembled in PhotoShop.
