That flag at the Patriots game is almost big enough for a Perkins. :) The first one, looking up a rotunda, is a very nice shot.

I love looking at flags during big games, and when it's in front of a home it fascinates me. These are lovely photos of your flag. Happy Thursday.

Great flag photos! Impressive that you have so many, and all from such diverse places.

I mentioned you at the end of today's blog post, by the way. I just finished reading Fried Green Tomatoes, per your recommendation, and enjoyed it. I also enjoyed Fannie Flagg's pork chops & gravy :) Thanks for the recommendation.

I scanned this post from my reader the other day and decided to come back today (the 4th) to look at it in depth. A very nice collection of flag photos from a wide variety of places. Very nice. Thanks for the reminder about the CBS show of the Boston Pops.
