Skip to comments.America: 50 States in 50 Photos
Posted on 09/23/2012 2:56:48 AM PDT by cripplecreek
In the past, I've composed many photo essays that took viewers on virtual tours of distant countries. Today, I decided to do the same thing, but focus closer to home, collecting one recent photograph from each of the 50 states in the United States of America. The photographs are not necessarily meant to represent the whole of any state. They are simply interesting, noteworthy, beautiful, or otherwise caught my eye. Sit back and enjoy a quick jaunt around the USA in 50 photographs from mid-2012.

Graphics heavy, duh.
Those are mostly very good.
I think the little boy throwing the first pitch is the best of them all. Amazingly adorable!
I also did like the NYC shot of the two gals watching the fireworks. That was a nice shot.
“Some are more representative of the state than others.”
Yes, that was true. I also felt like there was more than one Arkansas, but maybe I always feel that way....at least since Clinton!
Agreed! The photo of the little pitcher would make a nice substitute for Clemons in the famous set of photos showing Clemons, then W, then Miss America, then 0 making a pitch.
I haven’t lived in NY since ‘74, but the southern tier (below Rochester) also has some beautiful country. During Fall time you can drive 15 down through the foothills and take postcard picture forever.
Will look later...thanks.
#6 and #23 are my favorites.
The Texas photo was a real disappointment!!
A cowboy rides his horse through town as he watches a Cinco de Mayo celebration in Beardstown, Illinois, on May 6, 2012. There are approximately 900 immigrant workers from 34 countries employed in Beardstown at the Cargill meat packing plant and most are willing to work hard at just about anything for a better life in the United States. While both longtime community residents and immigrants agree that most people accept the newcomers, the beginnings were rocky and some problems still remain. (Reuters/Jim Young)
Gig ‘em, Aggies!

Yes, but did you see the one Gator in the crowd?
