I was taking fireworks photos in Bloomingdale on July 3, and they had an exceptional fireworks display. As I was looking at the photos I thought how nice it would be to include our flag in the photo. I absolutely love the way it turned out.

I took this picture of a recently planted cornfield in Hampshire. This particular photo was taken a couple of years ago although it could have been taken this past spring. I like the uniformity of the plant and row spacing while the rows follow a curve dictated by a nearby creek. Thanks to all of you who farm.
