|To me, this grand opening sign represents the American Dream.
I always loved to hear the old folks in my neighborhood tell me how they came to this country. How they came with nothing more than the clothes on their back, how they only had $2 in their pocket and how they risked everything to build a new life for their families and themselves in the land where dreams come true.
These stories still inspire and motivate me. I believe dreams can come true with a tremendous amount of hard work, courage, and for me, a little faith.
I used Photoshop to selectively desaturate the background, crop and do some basic edits.
