But they can fade. I debated with myself about putting up this image. To me when I shot this old flag tied up in a tree in the forest near an old campsite used by the homeless, I thought about how it was out of place. Then I thought about the way it looked and made interesting shapes in the wind. I noticed how it was getting thread-bare and see through. When I started processing the images and thinking more about them, I began to debate if I should even post it. What would people think? Should I have taken it down and disposed of the flag properly and respectfully? Was I trying to make a political statement about the state of the nation? I don't really know right now. Maybe all those things, maybe not. Your thoughts?
