Weekend Snapshot: Flag by Night

IMG 6096

The flag for me is my mother, my father, my daughter, my family, my friends, my heart and my soul. It stands for everything I love about home. To paraphrase presidents Lincoln and Obama, it is not that our country is perfect, but that it can be made perfect through the faith and loyalty and labor of its members. So long as we believe in each other, we have hope.

  8. in broad daylight or against the darkened night sky, there is something majestic about that flag, standing for so many things and for some of us in our hearts forever

  11. This is exactly how I see a flag, and patriotism. A symbol of collective defence of what we individually find is worth defending.

  12. Nice shot of the flag in the night.
    We all need faith and hope to bring us through the toughest time :)

  13. Cool shot. The lighting and the requisite shutter speed give a sense of movement... something the country seriously needs -- especially now.

  19. Apparently, I am unable to comment on your spectral poem, the comment box doesn't show

    anyway here's the comment:

    I thought it's a lovely tribute even if unrelated to 911, photographs really reminds us of what's pass even when it's gone

  20. I think those words, paraphrased or not, should be engraved in each citizen's mind to retrieve at will and remind us of that hope we have even when things are tough, like now. There is strength in pulling together, working for a common good. I don't know why it takes hard times to remind us of this.

  21. That is probably what members of all countries feel about their own flags, and Texans about theirs.

  22. It looks dark but this is what makes it special :)
