Flagpole

Well, the flagpole didn't look tilted when I took this shot, I guess it must have been me. The flagpoles in the New York City parks have this masthead shape, with the City of New York flag on the left, and the Parks Department flag on the right (the Parks Department flag displays the leaf of a London Plane Tree.) I think it may be the P.O.W. flag under the American one. This was in Fort Tryon Park in Washington Heights.

Looks great anyway ... and a nice sunny autumn NYC day too.

j'aime bien le drapeau de la ville de NYC, il me fait penser a un drapeau d'un pays d'Amérique du Sud.
Bon Weekend

I like the flag of the city of NYC, it makes me think of a flag of a country in South America.
Good Weekend

The picnic basket must have included a nice bottle of wine! Have a fun weekend, try shooting some reflections in the rain.

There is a mast like that at Arlington. That is what I thought of when I saw that picture.

Maybe you should try doing some experiments with holding the camera at an angle?!?! This is a great start, even if it wasn't on purpose :)

I think you are just trying to make us believe that you only drank water when you snapped this picture Lori. But we know! It does look tilted my dear.

Hi Lori! Here I am to enjoy your lovely blog on my weekly visit!
And this week we have again some wonderful pictures. The flagpole can be corrected with ShiftN, an amazing programme to correct some perspective errors... ;)
The Maine pictures look so serene; but no lobsters around... ;))
Look forward to reading you at Blogtrotter, now back in Chania!
Have a great weekend!

@Olivier: NYC flag has the same colours as The Netherlands...

Interesting photo. I will be posting flags along with the troops on Wed. for ABC Wed. Come take a look on Wed. if you can. They had a send off in Bellefonte.
