I took this photo on July 4, 2009 at Fort McHenry, in Baltimore Harbor. This was the scene of the battle that inspired the Star Spangled Banner. This huge flag, from the early 1800's flew over the fort for several years.
On this July 4th this and another retired flag were unfolded and held open by all the visitors to the fort, as everyone sang our national anthem. I was holding a piece of the flag in my other hand when I snapped this photo.
Background textures are a flag piece from Scrapbook Flair and a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Yankee Doodle was googled.
A truly patriotic spirit flows through this wonderful art piece Linda- love the use of your own photo. Happy 4th!ReplyDelete
