What explosions in our inbox this week! July 4th seems to have prompted some exceptionally beautiful and thought-through images. As a French woman living in New York City, I thought there would have been more fun poked at old Uncle Sam, but the show of joyful celebration and patriotism was great to see. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit, these were fun to go through and once again very difficult to narrow down. As always, we look forward to hearing which ones you liked best and why in the comments. Happy beginning of summer!
