In honor of the 4th of July, I thought I would be patriotic and put up a flag picture that I took on a trip to Florida. It wasn’t until much later that I saw the distinct face in the waving flag. The flag was far away and the it was dark and windy so the picture was blurry and I discounted it for being blurry. Now, I really like it. I learned a lesson from this project that I want to share: Don’t be so eager to dislike or criticize something without giving it a good hard look. You might find that in judgement, you missed something like I did.
Karl – Once again you’ve managed to capture the essence of patriotism but in an abstract way in your photography. I see the flag waving in all its glory and the face, distorted and appearing almost evil, representing the troubled times we face in this nation. The floods and tornadoes, protests and civil and economic unrest we face is indicative of a nation on the brink of disaster. Our politicians in their stubborness insist on splitting this country at its very core while its people perish. That maybe a bit melodramatic but a picture is worth 1,000 words, and so I’ll stop before I fear I faint from being long winded. There is enough hot air in this country already.
