Editor’s Choice: Stars and Stripes and More
The Fourth of July, 1776. Independence Day for the United States of America. It’s a big country, and its national spirit is even bigger—just like this celebration. Let’s take a look at some of the best photos on Zonerama that celebrate symbols of American pride.
This photo has aged like a fine wine. Its author has made good use of the Stars and Stripes to add life to the scene. Author: Nico Koolsbergen
A fresh take on a famous sidewalk. What’s best about this photo is how despite all the different elements it contains, they aren’t in conflict—they all balance out. Author: Jiří “jirkazhradce” Černý
Sure, it’s a joke photo, but it’s also a good photo, and a great use of the Stars and Stripes. The main scene with the landscape and the person in the background is solid, but monotonous. The can gives it both life and a real subject. Author: Jaryn78
This one is cheating a bit, since the red, white, and blue you see belongs to the Royal New Zealand Navy—but we couldn’t not pick this one. A photo from another age, with some small technical problems. But it doesn’t matter, because it makes up for them in atmosphere—it’s brimming with a good mood and friendship. Author: jcinanshan
This photo also has a few technical problems. But it’s still a fine take on a scene that we all will miss forever. Author: gardenroute
