As American As...
Still playing catch-up from various trips across the country. These snaps from the road struck me as peculiarly American. As a New Yorker, driving is still infrequent enough to be in the honeymoon phase for me. I love driving at twilight especially when natural and artificial light sources discover their equilibrium. And of course, to make these landscapes evocative of this American millenium, they have product placement.
