Wind can do many things. Wind can ruin your picnic, refresh you during a run, and power a windmill. Wind can also make the American Flag fly like freedom… and that is my favorite. Wind wakes the Flag up and makes the National Anthem play in the back of my mind.
Normally the American Flag is in the center of my photo, but there is something beautiful about the Rule of Thirds, something tranquil, something peaceful.
But what is the true focal point of this photo? Is it the sun or is it the Flag? That is entirely up to you. It can be the sun, the Flag, the water, or the dock… and why is it up to you? Because the Flag means freedom.
