American Icons

The American flag is a symbol of of the United States and its wealth and power recognized around the world. The logos of many American business corporations have also become known in even the most remote corners of the world as symbolic of American cultural and economic influence. 

McDonald's restaurants are one of these American icons. I remember, when I was young, when the Soviet Union allowed a McDonald's to open in Moscow. This was when Russia was still under Communist rule, and tens of thousands of Russians lined up to eat there.

This McDonald's is on Coliseum Boulevard in my hometown; Fort Wayne, Indiana. The flag is the gigantic American flag at Glenbrook Dodge, a car dealer located next door to the restaurant. The flag, which is 80 feet long, normally flies at the top of a 232 foot tall flagpole, but it was flying at half-staff to honor the victims of a terrorist attack that took place in Belgium a few days earlier.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
