The theme is open to interpretation, but the idea is any photo that represents or portrays the USA in anyway. No restrictions on PP.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 7th July 2014.
Poll will be up Tuesday 8th July 2014.
Winner to be announced Saturday 12 July 2014.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win

If only we'd been doing this about 20 years ago - I would've been sorted. Ipswich was surrounded by American bases and visiting was fairly easy.

Now we only have a few and they're not exactly on the doorstep  >:(
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

American (chain) store? Car? (Especially vintage ones with lots of chrome.), Coke? Technology? Facebook? 'Following?' 'Wild West' inspired things? Burger and fries?

Well they were pulling down our local McDonald's sign this weekend for "new branding" whatever that may be so last chance to take a pic of this, i have taken this a few times before for various projects etc:

Found this topic a bit constricting  so best i can come up with, last weekend was the local american car show and i had loads from that but before the dates.


Vintage McDonald's

I thought about the McDonalds sign too, but we live 35 kms away from the nearest and didn't want to drive just for that (especially for a McDonalds sign!!). Nice PP work Jeff, especially the light ray.

A brief flash of an idea and an obedient partner!!

The only bit of USA around here is some Chevy style  :tup:

I ended up in a cinema / retail complex early this morning and we went in  here for breakfast. I`d been shooting images for a project about the Tour de France in Yorkshire I am doing so had my camera with me. Suddenly thought - "oh the competition theme"  :uglystupid2:. Took a few shots and pout them together for this.

Only just managed to drag myself out of bed after three days on man flu. So I didn't get the photo I was hoping to get. Just processing a photo i got earlier and will post soon.
