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.
I love your first photo!
I had difficulties in finding flags here, but you have a great collection of different and interesting flags.
I wish you a happy weekend!
Love the flags from inside the boat and thinking differently! I tried to do a bit of that too, but also kept in the theme of Canada day.. :)
I love that first pic too! Great series for the theme :)
great angles and beautiful blue sky. i love the 3rd pic best though.
happy weekend Carver!
wah love your flags photos too.. especially the first one..

I love the little flags against the sky :) We're on the same wavelength on it :P
I LOVE your first shot Carver!
Have a nice weekend :)
wow...lots of flags.
Mine entry this week, in HERE. Hope you could stop by as well.
Signal flags? Does that mean they all mean different things?
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.
Fabulous idea for this theme!I loved all pictures!Your official flag is wonderful indeed!
Thanks for sharing
have a great weekend
purrs and love by Luna(from Brazil)
Great shots! I love the different angles.
I think that we will see a lot of American flags this week. Like the nautical ones.
Great shots. I love the signal flags but I do love the perspective of the first shot. Happy weekend
Loved all your flag photos... my favorite is through the port hole...
great series of shots from you but again i was confused... like i said before i still cant seem to shake off the idea of green, rural country garden scenes with ur blog. i thot i was at the wrong place again :) i am getting absent minded haha
JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! Love all of it:)
Oh so do I very fun esp #1
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! :)
I love that second photo from a port hole :)
Wonderful collection of photos Carver. Apparently I never think of photographing flags as I had to resort to scanning stuff.
Happy weekend to you.
wow, you really had a great time taking photos of these flags! love the first photo.:)
Some great shots although the outstanding one is the first! Good choices for the theme
I love the angle of the first photo! So cool!
Happy weekend, carver!
love the USA flag unfurled and harrassed by the winds. Gona b a big day soon for USA and myself! haha.
Being a Navy wife...I love the signal flags.
Mine flag is posted. Stop by, won't you?
Ah, so that's the North Carolina flag!
You certainly found tons of flags!
Wonderful collection of flags! Love the perspective on your photos.
Happy weekend (keep cool!).
Colorful photos! I notice that your state flag is really similar to our Texas flag.
Have a good weekend!
these are lovely flags. i love the first photo.
great shots! love the 1st.
Well done and creatively displayed!
Great flag shots,... love the one taken through the hole.
My post is up, come on by..
the first one looks like hands grabbing the sky - great perspective
Great perspective on that first shot. Wonderful set for this week's theme.
Wow, VERY COOL photos!! I did ones quite similar. :D I LOVE your first photo, looking up the flagpole-- terrific!
I also did Photo Hunters (finally). I hope you can visit.
Have a happy weekend!
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.
Great flag pictures
I would never had thought of using a different angle...Great idea and selection of flags...
Great set of flag photos, I like the angle of the first one best.
