In the end more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free.  -Edward Gibbon (1737 – 1794)

Celebrating the Fourth of July with thoughts on our precious freedoms… earned with the blood of millions and coveted by every living person who dose not have Freedom! We surrender them so easily… while others fight for them their whole lives. I decided to celebrate with a collection of my macro images of rust and urban grunge and peeling paint… that best suggest the illusion of fireworks! Kaboom!! Happy Fourth to all!!!
