The Empire State Building in New York City lights up at night in different colors depending on the occasion. Here it is in red, white, and blue, the colors of the American flag. I just learned the meaning of the colors: white for purity and innocence, red for valor and hardiness, and blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice. Sharing with Friday My Town Shoot Out! at http://mytownshootout.blogspot.com/, where the theme this week is "patriotism"; and with Pixel Dust Photo Art at http://www.pixeldustphotoart.com/, where the theme is "architecture." Happy 4th of July weekend, celebrating independence!
