Keynote from the photographer on this collection
Origin of the word America can be traced back to the name of an early new world explorer Amerigo Vespucci. However, it was Thomas Jefferson's "original rough draught" of the Declaration of Independence, which made the phrase "United States of America" popular. The claim, expansion and consolidation of USA and its territories happened through a series of events including the Revolutionary War, Louisiana Purchase, Trail of Tears, Mexican War, Civil War, Alaska Purchase and the Spanish-American War. USA today is a federal constitutional republic consisting of fifty states and a federal district.

Some of the biggest events that gather excitement and large crowd of people in USA include the Rose Parade (Jan; Pasadena, CA), Mardi Gras (Feb; New Orleans, LA), Cherry Blossom Festival (Mar; Washington DC), Boston Marathon (Apr; Boston, MA), Kentucky Derby (May; Louisville, KY), Indy 500 (May; Indianapolis, IN), Santa Fe Trail Festival (Jun; Trinidad, CO), 4th of July (Jul; Washington DC), Air and Water Show (Aug; Chicago, IL), Route 66 Mother Road Festival (Sep; Springfield, IL), Balloon Fiesta (Oct; Albuquerque, NM), Thanksgiving Day Parade (Nov; NYC, NY) and New Year celebration (Dec; NYC, NY).

For many, this online American photo exhibition may be a walk through their own memory lanes; for others, it might be a new experience. This collection can also serve as a framework in determining where you want to visit and what you want to see, when you are planning a trip in the USA. Nevertheless, I believe we will all find something to relish while browsing through these images. In compiling this collection, I learned that it takes a great vision, immortal enthusiasm, continuous learning and lifetime of commitment to craft a magnum opus.

As a tribute to great technologies, frequent travelers and to all amateur photographers, I render some of my US photo albums for viewing and critiquing. To find the list of attractions in each state as well as the photos and its description, please go through the regional menu. If you only want to see photos and its caption from any particular state, try the ‘View all listed American albums’ hyperlink. If you are just here to browse through the entire American photo collection in one shot – I recommend you use the ‘View all listed American photos’ hyperlink.
