I found this as it stands in the photo. I know the chair should be cloned out or been moved. I just wanted to capture it as it was, as I don't believe this was "set-up" to convey anything. To me, a message is present. It probably has more of a personal, or documentary use, but I would appreciate your thoughts very much.

I really don't mind the chair being there. The picture doesn't work for me though. I wish that this was one in a series. IMHO without some context, the dream center closed american flags just doesn't work.

Or put the chair fully in frame.

Thanks for your reply. The flag has no meaning to me. What I saw was the bear, and it's pose, then the dream center sign. The pose of the bear looks as if it is waiting. In a time when things are tough, it makes me smile. To me, the message is simple, yet it seems to be a personal thing (some get it some don't).

One of many things I see when viewing this is a child living in poverty, waiting for the dream center to reopen, while this bear is on the other side waiting for the child.

Another could be a message of patience. Many interpretations are available.

Thanks again for your reply.
