For the past year or so, I have taken notice of they flags once so proudly displayed just after 9/11. That was six years ago, and now those very same flag are torn and tattered much like our patriotism. This past Wednesday I told my digital class to bring to the next critrique at least one image of a forgotten flag. And another one for the week after that. Photographer and teacher, Karl Baden, has been making images of flags for the past few years, and I realize I have somewhat captolized on his idea. If enough good ones come in, I plan to display them in the second floor gallery at school. I told them I would participate, also, and above is my first one. If you have one, or know of one, please post the URL in the comments section.

I am so glad you posted both the photo and the comments. This post and your link got me thinking about my shots of flags--and the times I have been moved by seeing a flag and failed to take the photo. The forgotten flags are especially touching. This shot was a powerful way to make your statement. Thank you.
