the flags

(L-R)  County Donegal, Ireland and Moville flags.  I have tried to photograph these flags before and it's rather hard.  You either have no wind, wind but not enough to extend the flags or they get wrapped around the pole and just hang.  I was walking up from the shore and saw that the flags were blowing pretty good.  So this is the best I've gotten so far.

  3. Oh I hear you Bill, flags can be the trickiest to catch flying out, well done on getting three in a row 😃

  7. I have the same problem with flags...I've found I have to be patient and have a quick lens! You did quite well, I'd say.

    Somewhere I read that at one time you lived in Maine. Were you born in the US or in Ireland. Just curious. None of my business so you needn't answer.

  8. Getting three of them to be straight out is nearly impossible! Well done!

  11. I know what you mean. Flags are hard. Fortunately, the American Stars and Stripes is so well known that it can be "read" even if partially furled.

  12. Flags are wonderful symbols to sow both heritage and patriotism.
