Photohunt: Pink and Happy U.S. Independence Day

Update - I was relieved to read that TN Chick's husband is home now and recovering. When I went to the home of photohunters to put the link in my blog I saw some sad news. TN Chick the host of Photohunters has requested prayers for her husband who has been hospitalized. My thoughts and prayers are with her husband as well as with her and their children. I hope they will get good news soon. What a relief to go to her site today and see that he is home.
The photohunt theme this week is pink. When I saw the sky Wednesday night at sunset, I grabbed my camera and knew that would be one of my PH shots this week. The next shot is one I took this spring. Although the azalea is a dark pink, in that light it almost looks red. When I took the shot I thought it might be good for the Fourth of July since it looks like my front yard is red, white, and blue.
Since red is a mixture of white and pink, to stretch a point the U.S. flag could be said to have separated pink (the red and white aren't mixed on the flag but they equal pink).
I took both of the flag shots when we were in Wilmington, NC on memorial day. I took them from the car so the composition leaves something to be desired but I thought they worked for the U.S. Independence Day which is July 4. Also, to stretch a point they are separated pink.
I hope that everyone who celebrates it has a Happy Independence Day and I hope that TN Chick's husband is on the road to recovery. I am as usual early since Saturday is the Photohunters post day.
