I took this image at an antique car show quite a while ago, and have been saving it for an appropriate flag-waving day.

SONY DSLR-A700 1/125 second F/11.0 ISO 800 120 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

You put this one on your site as I was looking at the earlier photos!
A beautiful car, nicely restored. Makes me feel nostalgic.

This car and its flag make a fine shot for this special day. It certainly looks like a well maintained older truck.
