Portraits of American Life

Happy birthday, America.
In honor of the USA’s 233rd birthday, I’m posting a couple of random photos I took this week with my iPhone. Sorry for the poor quality shots; they’re from an original Apple iPhone with a crummy 2-megapixel camera.
The first two photos show a cop this morning at Dunkin’ Donuts in Wilmette, Ill. A walking stereotype to be sure. Maybe he got some “stars and stripes” frosted doughnuts like we did.
The second two photos show an artist drawing representations of models from the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue using wax pencils or grease pencils. He was sitting at Taco Bell in Glenview, Ill., earlier in the week doing a drawing of Slovokian model Lucia Dvorsk√°. Certainly a better subject than a bowl of fruit.
