Our Old Flag

DSCF1110

I only display our Betsy Ross Flag on July 4th. According to the traditional account (Wikipedia), the flag was made in June 1776, when a small committee – including George Washington, Robert Morris and relative George Ross – visited Betsy Ross and discussed the need for a new American flag. The flag features 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies with the stars arranged in a circle. I used the tilting LCD screen on my new Fujifilm X-T100 camera held next to the flag pole to get the composition I wanted. Unfortunately, there was no wind to show the flag. So, I stood there looking through the camera viewfinder, getting dizzy, when a slight breeze came up and moved the flag. Nothing like patience in the mind of a devoted photographer.
