The Flag at Fort McHenry ~ Baltimore, MD

These shots were taken  during our visit to the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore.  The entrance to the museum is directly across the street from Fort McHenry so I was able to shoot these close up shots with the trusty old telephoto. That American flag was huge! 







God Bless America
Land that I love. 
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
~Irving Berlin

  3. Very inspiring photo of the flag! Francis Scott Key wrote our national anthem while at Ft. McHenry on Sept 14 1812. A bit of history I remember because I was born on Sept 14th
