Here are a couple interesting shots.

Both were shot with Nikon D100, Sigma 28-70 f2.8 lens.

The first is an old and rather unusual representation of the US flag prior to Hawaii and Alaska becoming states. This is the 48-state American flag done as a rock mosaic. This was taken at the Pederson Rock Garden near Bend, Oregon. This is a miniature world created entirely out of rocks cemented to a form. It includes buildings, bridges, ponds, lighthouses, etc. It is primarily the work of one man, a life's work, I might add. The man who created this garden is now dead and his family are doing their best to maintain it, although is is deteriorating.


1/350th at f10, ISO 200

The second shot shows some brightly colored banners on a fishing pier on the Oregon Coast near Garibaldi.


1/160th at f6.3, ISO 200

Nice shots Cal...the first one is striking, especially with the history you have shared with us!



And of course, I love the colorful banners.
