Skywatch Friday: My Colors

I took the bottom photo first while I was walking around Waterbury on Christmas Eve. My daughter was practicing with her choir, and I was at a loose end, so I took myself out and about with the camera. The flames of the red in the bottom photo caught my eye. I was mesmerized as I watched the flag move in the winter breeze. It moves so gracefully and in its own time.
