04 July 2012


The editing process for the photographs I made on our recent historic waterways trip has provided most of my post on this 4th of July.  I ended up with more images of the American flag than I'd realized as we traveled from Warren RI to Chicago IL for a couple of reasons.  First, it was windy and the flags were doing more than simply hanging there.  Second, I was playing with shutter speed, fast enough that I could handhold the camera and have stationary objects clearly in focus and slow enough to convey a sense of movement.  Flags were just the thing ...

Enjoy the flag waving and happy Independence Day.
