Happy Independence Day!

I’m spending the day with my family, laughing, eating way too much, and being thankful for all my blessings; the freedom, and liberty we have in this country which was hard won by my/our forefathers.  John Adams summed my feeling today when he said, “[L]iberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”
John Adams

I wish all my fellow countrymen and women a wonderful day full of fun, great food, and maybe some fireworks shared with those you love!  If you’re not celebrating Independence Day today I hope you have a lovely day too!

I made this image a couple of weeks ago at the Rodeo with a Nikon Df & Nikkor 80-200mm lens.

I made this image last summer at the Rodeo. These guys would have a laugh or two in between riders, and events, but man they worked hard  when it was time to work, and making sure the arena was ready for the show. Cowboys

I do love those BIG belt buckles!
