A red, white, and blue morning from Buddy this week. He says he didn't tweak it at all-- this is exactly how it came from his iPhone when he was headed out to haul.

I'm going to go all American Studies on you and say that the colors of this image jumped out at me immediately as a modern reflection of Frederic Church's 1861 painting "Our Banner in the Sky," which Church painted to show how, as the Civil War broke out, the heavens indicated their support for the United States by reflecting the nation's colors in the setting sun.

I like that Buddy's image is of the sunrise.

Am still making up for lost sleep from the semester. Will see you tomorrow.
