Today’s challenge topic is “Money can’t buy . . .” fill in the blank. I thought I would take a spectacular landscape photo for this challenge, perhaps of majestic Mount Shasta or another Sacramento River view, with the title “Money Can’t Buy This View” but after days of beautiful weather, it was overcast this morning with nary a mountain or river in sight. As we left to go on our morning walk, I took a closeup photograph of the flag that graces my brother’s front porch and decided that what money can’t buy is the freedom we all take too much for granted.
I applied a slight curves adjustment to brighten the faded flag colors a bit.
Focal Length 200mm
One thought on “Day 362—Money Can’t Buy Freedom”
Wonderiful closeup! I love how the folds in the flag create the beautiful composition! Excellent focus on the details! You have definitely achieved your 2011 goal of taking photos in sharp focus- what will your 2012 goal be???
