Red, White & Blue
To all my friends back in the USA, Happy Fourth of July! I rode around town today looking for things that were red, white or blue. There's plenty of red, some white, and not much blue. Even the sky isn't blue these days. Above is a store in the city centre.
This pottery installation is by Edmund de Waal, a leading British potter. Everything was white and very sparse. This particular installation was a large plywood box, nearly 10' tall with lots of white plates on different shelves. I believe this one had the price of £180,000!!!
And to end it, we saw these Americans waving their flags. Jolly good! (Oh Say Can You See blue jeans and athletic shoes?!)
