    Old Glory

    I just made a post in the "you might be a redneck" thread and said I was going to start a thread of Old Glory shots.

    Here's my first salvo, an oldie but goodie:

    Re: Old Glory

    Here is the very first image I took with my new Pentax K2OD...
    As I was looking for something to photograph, I saw old Glory and how appropriate...

    Re: Old Glory

    My shame .....
    I just riffled through my files and found that I do not have a decent
    photo of "Old Glory".
    That will be rectified this summer.
    Thanks I_Fly for a great thread.

    Nice! Gotta love a string of firetrucks showing the colors!

    I'll have to show this one to my 3 yr old. He's into fire trucks big time right now. We went to visit the local "fire truck house" to visit the firefighters and he was in heaven! I'll have to post pics soon.

    Thanks for sharing! Makes me wonder who the person was, who placed the flag, and why. Makes me very reflective!
