American Flag on the Fourth of July

    Newer Older

    Happy 235th birthday, America!

    This large American flag was hanging from a hook-and-ladder firetruck and flying over the street in Sioux Center, Iowa. Like this:

    I opened the sun roof as we drove by and snapped the photo of the flag flying above us. (My husband was driving.)

    I edited it with the painting FX on BigHugeLabs.

    MyActiveChild, todfox, and 5 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Steve, that was a very helpful parenting blog about helping children deal with 9/11. Thanks for sharing it with us.

      this is a rad interpretation of the flag as a subject and a texture...
