This was my favorite shot from the Lipizzaner Stallion exhibition. It was a bonus it was Memorial Day weekend this year. The Takumar 135mm/f2.5 has it's limits, but it nails the shot sometimes.

Of all the beautiful horses, and riders costumes that must have been there, you chose a picture of a flag as your favourite! Why?

Why not a close up showing the detail of the stitching and embroidery in the riders sleeve for instance?

A flag, really!

A few reasons:

1) from a distance in the dark, fine embroidery is hard to capture with any conventional lens.
2) It was MEMORIAL DAY (see the title of the post).

You are quite welcome to take your own photos of your subject matter, I promise I won't drop by your posts and dump on your choices like a churlish child.

I salute your choice in choosing this photo! Having pride in our flag is a great thing.
