I like the way you think Jypsee and I like this picture!

I like your windows. Wonderful splash of color that the flag provides.

Well, I like the flag; I was indoctrinated young to pledge allegiance to it. I sing the national anthem willingly, and it's about our flag. This is not to say that I'm a fundamentalist or conservative about it. People who want to wear it or burn it don't bother me. It's their flag, too. As for hanging it on the house, here's what it means to me: I love this country. For all the disagreements and political bents of the people of my country, we (for the most part, GW Bush's administration is an exception) revere independent speech and thought. You may say something I don't agree with, but I'll fight anyone who tries to stop you from saying it. So, the flag is what binds me and my disagreeable neighbor. We each believe it symbolizes us and our politics. And, it does.

Very nice. I'm intrigued about why Americans like to have a flag on their house. I think that it is a nice thing to do, but you aren't really about to forget your house is in the US - and I don't suppose that anyone else will either. Or is there some kind of law stating that you must have a flag? I have often wondered about this, because the Portuguese tend to do it too (although with Portuguese flags, obviously).

Similar lighting and chair; I see what you mean. I really like what you did with the processing on this -- that vivid blue is great and really balances the picture. Interesting angle... ;^) I love those "uh, I meant to do that" shots. I like this -- it does feel somehow nostalgic (not in terms of Liberty(!) but the lighting).
