A boy savors a cup of ice cream outside McDonald's in Iola, Kansas. No place I've ever lived has had such classically -- almost iconic -- slices of Americana as Iola. This kid had literally ridden his bike to McDonald's to buy an ice cream cone after a game of softball with his friends. It just doesn't get any more American than that.

Photographed with a Pentax MX and SMC Pentax-M 100mm lens.
