    This may well be the last assignment of '08.

    Let's see some creative flag pictures. I've been driving around looking for flags to take pictures of. We don't have many in public places in my small town so I look forward to finding some good pics in Chicago next week. Meanwhile, here's my submissions.

    Took this photo of the giant flag on Mexico City's main square. Used a film camera so I scanned the print.

    They looove their giant flags down there!

    I was trying to get a shot of the flag with the sun shining through but I couldn't pull it off... the flag was moving too quickly and I get getting white-out pics because the sun was shining directly in my lens...

    Flags at half mast always give me chills... I also get them when I see aircraft flying in the missing man formation.

    It's a formation used in ceremonies. It's when planes fly with one aircraft missing from the formation. It signifies the loss of a fellow airman/soldier.
