Majestic American Symbol
A feather in the window.
I was in an old car with a guide in Canyon de Chelly (Arizona).  I kept seeing a feather blowing in the wind near her windshield.  It fascinated me, so I snapped the image.

The Key on the Archway.
We were wandering around Portugal, off the beaten Path, and found this archway that has a key built into the top.  Loved the yellow hut showing through.

Art Show on the Cobblestones.
Alleyways are everywhere in Croatia.  And I suddenly came upon this special art show, enhanced by the cobblestone street.
