Photo Blogging Challenge (July 2015): Patriotic

This post is for a blog hop called Photo Blogging Challenge (July 2015):  Patriotic.   I looked through some of my photos to see what I had.  (Only one of the group is one I actually took this month, but I thought the others fit the theme.)  Click on the link above to see some other posts for this blog hop.

Some of the patriotic music inspired the selection of the photos I chose to display.

  5. Great mash-up of music and images for this month's theme. I like the creativity of your approach. I think I've been through the border crossing at Blaine - it's called the Peace something-or-other, if I remember correctly. And I do remember the beautiful park, something I've not seen at any other border crossing location.

    1. Thank you. The monument is the Peace Arch. The park is called the Peace Arch Park.
