I was taking pictures last week at the local marina. The sky was stunningly blue and the water as still as a mirror. It was a real treat to have the chance to play with such circumstances. I was shooting the reflection of masts when I noticed the American flag reflection.
Since the air was very still I had to wait some minutes for a breeze to move the flag enough to create this image. I took the picture simply because it was cool.
Reviewing the picture later that afternoon I began to wonder about the emotions this image might stir. I showed it to some friends. One person identified the upside down flag as a signal of distress.
Is this image a metaphor for the current situation in America? Are we in distress and underwater? Or do you see the potential in the blue sky?
