Quintessentially British July 4th Celebration

Yes, as a naturalized American I am well aware that today is the day we celebrate Independence and the shedding of the shackles of tyranny from our historical overlords, however, there are already millions of web pages covering this theme today. So, instead I am going to use this post to celebrate something that happened yesterday.

Depending on the day, I have the privilege/honor/burden to curate the art group Quintessentially British on the art website pixels.com. I set up this group almost 4 years ago, on July 9th 2012, to showcase art that represents Britishness in some way and it how hosts images from over 670 members. Yesterday, I accepted the 10,000th image to the collection, which I share here.

In between hot dogs and fireworks why not take a look at some of the images from the land of the old Imperial Overlords?

Happy July 4th!

    1. From the height of the water on the piers of the opposite bank it look like low tide on the Thames. It may even be at slack water (the point where the tide changes) which would explain the stillness of the water.
