Sometimes you just have to flip the camera upside-down in order to get the photo you want. Noe shows the result you can get with her simple, yet elegant, shot of a reflection in a puddle. Some wonderful white clouds, accented with a touch of blue sky, are dirtied with what’s on the bottom of the puddle. All that gives the image a wonderful texture and gives the viewer’s eye some depth to get lost in. The ripples also add a nice element to the shot by distorting the pole just enough to make it look abstract. Such a wonderful photo!
Is the flag upside down at NOAA HQ?

Andy Carvin snapped this photo this morning while riding by the NOAA headquarters. If you look at the full-size image, you can clearly see that the flag has been risen upside-down. As I recall from my Boy Scout days, that is a sign of distress. Fortunately, we now have 911 to dial when we are in distress, so I wonder what went wrong today that they somehow managed to raise the flag that way.
Anybody else catch this?
