Photohunters: Flags

The photohunters theme this week is flags. I enjoy photographing flags from different angles.
The flag above flies over the post office box where I usually drop off my letters. The flags below are in front of the Wake County Courthouse. The flag on the right is North Carolina's flag.The signal flags below were shot through a porthole aboard the USS North Carolina a retired battleship.
Although I posted some of my shots of the signal flags before, I took so many photographs that I had a lot left which I haven't posted before.
On the left hand side of the shot above you can see the USA flag just below the signal flags. This is on the deck of the boat and there is a small plane in the middle.
The last shot is very similar to ones I posted before of the signal flags. However, I took so many shots of the guns pointing at the clouds with the signal flags in between that I had a zillion, like this one, that I haven't posted yet. So I thought I'd use one of those zillion for the flags theme.
To find other participants, please visit the home of Photohunters on Saturday.

Signal flags? Does that mean they all mean different things?

Nice photos.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and yes the flags do all have meanings. Below is a link for the meanings of international maritime signals.

I wonder how you were able to hold back these photos and not show them for skywatch. Oh pretty pretty skies and wonderful set of flags.

Love the "shot through a porthole" shot. Also re the other shots of the signal flags: what really gets me amazed is the sky -- those clouds, not just the flags, really does make it look like it was a very windy day that day! :)

julie said...

I love that second photo from a port hole :)

jmb said...

I love all of them. The first reminds me of our post office this morning. I had to mail a letter and stepping out of the car heard the cheerful notes of the mockingbird. He was sitting right on top of the flagpole with the flag waving under him and singing to high heaven. Too bad I didn't have the camera.
My flags are here.
