Sky Watch Friday: July 4th

In honor of my country's Independence celebration, I thought it appropiate to take a look at the sky over Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA. It is here that our founding forefathers took their lifes in their own hands by signing our Declaration of Independence, freeing us from British rule and giving birth to a new nation.

I have seen that place before and still think it should have been the nation's capitol for all times. I like it and your photography. Very nice work.

I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions
