July 2012 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper: American Flags in Tennessee

 Get your July 2012 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper! This flag photo comes from a cross-country trip that I took in 2006 with my Jeep Wrangler. I drove from Philadelphia to Arizona and back in three weeks, traveling only small highways and seeing national parks that were along the way.

While I mapped out my overall course, my goal was to enjoy the open road, and stop to take photos when I felt like it. I ate when I was hungry, and searched for a place to stay only when I was done driving for the day (I chose mostly chain hotels such as Super 8 and only encountered problems finding a room once, in Morgantown, West Virginia, during graduation at West Virginia University).

The flags pictured were planted on a public lawn in a small town somewhere in Tennessee, between Nashville and the state’s western border. I had stopped to get lunch, not far from the town square. When I looked out the diner window, I saw several rows of flags, put out for the Memorial Day holiday.  I was drawn to the angles of the poles, and the way that the flags were fluttering in the wind.
