Americaville was created as a syndicated picture column. My intention is to share observations and use one simple line of text to focus the viewer on my thoughts at the time I saw the picture. Americaville can be a little snarly at times, humorous at others, but always a portrayal of contemporaryAmerican culture. I adhere to the great Samuel Clemens philosophy of “Do what you know”. By doing so I have discovered how much I don't know. I share observations, I don't make statements.
