A few weeks ago, Jess and I went down to the Saturday farmer’s market downtown. I brought my camera along just for giggles. I did a little shooting. Here is what I got. As always, the images link to the Flickr page where you can view the images larger. View all the images here.
US Bank Building – Idaho’s tallest.
The Aspen Building – The new “skinny” building in BoDo.
Wells Fargo Building – or geometric minimalism.
Idanha on Main Street – I like how the One Capital Center seems to loom on this one.
And my favorite shot, Leku Ona on the Basque Block. Just love the contrast and colors of this one.
In honor of the holiday, I spent a few minutes on song.ly, which is a service to tweet muisc. Don’t ask.
Anyway, I scored my own fireworks show, you know, were I to have one. This is what my fireworks show would sound like. I’m sure you can picture the brightly colored explosions perfectly timed to the following tunes.
http://song.ly/g4s7 U.S. Merchant Marine Band – Semper Fidelis
http://song.ly/g4sl John Philip Sousa – Stars and Stripes Forever
http://song.ly/g4t9 Williams, John – Theme From Superman
http://song.ly/g4tp Boston Pops – Indiana Jones Theme
http://song.ly/g4uf John Philip Sousa – Battle Hymn of the Republic
http://song.ly/g4vk Aaron Copeland – Hoe Down
http://song.ly/g4v0 George C. Scott as Patton – Patton Speech (I would play this as voice over a few of the songs)
http://song.ly/g4wq Aaron Copeland – Fanfare for the Common Man
http://song.ly/g4xl Back To The Future theme
http://song.ly/g506 Top Gun – Theme
http://song.ly/g50z Band of the Fighting Irish – Notre Dame Victory March
http://song.ly/g51z Chet Atkins, Roy Clark – Dueling Banjos
http://song.ly/g52s James Brown – Living in America
Grand Finale: http://song.ly/g53f Neil Diamond – Coming To America
Yes, the requisite fireworks show would have cost millions of dollars (at least the one I had in my head would) so, the best I can do is the music.
Happy Independence Day folks. I love this country.
