    There are some very touching image's in this thread. Nice job everyone. :D
    Here's my meager submission. I had walked into an Army Surplus store (Hahns) where one of the girls had just made this arrangement of free flags in celebration of the 4th. I figured I had better take the shot before this flag tree got plucked bare. :p

    Here are a few from my dad's funeral with the Honor Guard presenting the flag to my mom. The same one, but cropped and edited a little in the second one.

    I saw this truck last year, had to turn around and take a few photos, it is an old pick up converted to a BBQ grill, the owner gives cook outs for returning vets.

    I see a lot of Old Glory ... a lot.

    The Canberra Yacht Club has two neighbours. The Embassy of the People's Republic of China and the Embassy of the United States of America ... so hello to all nice extended neighbours.

    Back to Old Glory. The CYC has a flag.

    She is called 'The Flag of USA.' The Flag is seen by every person who enters our Yacht Club. The providence of the Flag is unique. There can n'ever be another like Her.

    She was flown at the headquarters of the Australian Challenger 'Gretel' in Newport Rhode Island during the 1962 America's Cup. The Flag was brought back to Australia by Gretel's co-Skipper Archie Robertson and presented to the Canberra Yacht Club.

    I like how 'The Flag of USA' describes the wind at Newport, during those amazing times. I left the reflections in the shot because this is how we most often see Her.

    As our Yacht Club is so close to the US Embassy, just 2 minute's walk across the park, it isn't hard to imagine who is a fine supporter of our club and where the US Embassy staff who sail, come and race.

    Above, Captain William Doorris Naval Attache' USN, my friend and 505 sailor, presents the 'America's Mug', the CYC's most prestigious trophy, to past World Champion Tasar sailors Rick and Carmal Longbottom, at this year's 'Champion of Champion's Regatta', held at the CYC and sponsored by the Australian American Association.

    I hope you enjoyed this different look at how Old Glory is seen ... in our neck of the woods.

    Warren.

    Dave S, Thankyou. I had been thinking about this thread for a while. I just didn't want to walk up to the US Embassy and start taking shots ... not a wise thing to do without an introduction nowadays.

    Maybe I should ring the Embassy and say, "This what I'm taking shots for and this is what I have been doing." I can imagine in the Embassy there could be a few nice images to find. I don't know if you have seen the US Embassy here in Canberra? It is an excellent looking building ... it looks like all of the Founding Fathers could have been born there.

    Javier, Thankyou. The image of 'The Flag of USA', is an HDR. 3 exposures, +/- 2 stops EV. The texture and colour are enhanced and the modelling looks great thanks to the HDR being able to hold the brightness range.

    All the best.

    Warren.
