Ronald, Dale Ann and Bobbie... Thank you for your comments. FYI... I originally photographed this flag in April 2004 and it was included in my photo entitled "Freedoms Contrast" which can be seen at the BP link below. That was in its "better days." Best wishes...

Paul Conlan May 29, 2005

Jim, Laura and Debra... Thanks for your comments! A worn out US flag always disturbs me... and this one especially does with the very strange way the white stripes have rotten away and the wood shows through. I agree that it can provoke a range of thoughts. Best wishes to you all... #1409390
