Flag and Fence

    Newer Older

    I was driving up the northern coast of California and came across this flag at the gate of a farm. Aside from being a nice flag picture, with the California coastal fog, it "feels" like a scene from a Civil War battlefield.

      OK, I am getting tired of saying this, but i found this on interestingness for 12/27 about page 47. Two in one day? Good shooting.

      stchuck - I really appreciate your letting me know! I never get a chance to check that section of flickr (and I'm not sure I'd get 47 pages deep!). It would be neat if they'd send a message or something.
      Anyway, thanks again. BTW, they're both old pix - I'm mixing in some "best ofs" (pix before flickr).

      A Civil War battlefield is exactly what I thought when I saw the thumb.

      Great capture.

      It absolutely feels like a Civil War battlefield. I stopped to look at it precisely because I wondered if it was one of the battlefields I have been to.

      The fact that it isn't adds to its poignancy and its effect (even though as a non-American - well actually an American parented non-citizen non-resident - I find the US thing about the flag rather spooky). 123

      The angle of the flag reminds me of the famous photograph of the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima during WWII. Nice catch.

      You're right. It does give that impression.
