I usually have my own special reason to celebrate American Independence Day  – just like the famous movie title, my little brother was born on the 4th of July. And while he isn’t American (or even English like me) and is now far from being a little boy, he did turn out to be a military man, and a real hero.

But while I could probably compile a post of family photos of my brother in action around the world (future post idea there), I think we can all agree that a photo essay of the good old Stars and Stripes is what you (and undoubtedly he) would rather see this weekend.

After contributing an image to Carpe Travel’s annual post celebrating American Independence Day though travel writers’ photos of the flag, I just couldn’t resist sharing a selection of my own Stars and Stripes photos with you too.
