Ruby Tuesday: Waving In The Wind

I took this shot months ago. I heard the flag before I saw it. I love that whipping sound that a flag makes in a strong wind.

And the sky was so beautiful.

Mary mentioned that today is flag day so it seemed a good time to share the shot.

I'm not much of a flag waver - especially since displaying the flag has been hijacked by crazies like the Tea Party.

But that's a story for another day on my other blog.

Dianne, I love you! Those tea party people don't know how good they have it. I know, that belongs on your other blog. :)
Oh yes, I like your flag picture too. The blue sky you found is almost unreal! Happy RT!

Great shot of a beauty .. another grand old broad

The flag needs a breeze, so it can unfurl to showcase its beauty. A calm day makes the flag sit still and we wouldn't see stars and stripes. A day of beauty sits upon the flag...
