If you follow me at all you'll know I've spent the last week in Apalachicola, FL teaching a workshop with my teaching partner, David Akoubian. If you follow David at all, then you'll notice this flag from a post he made a few days ago.
If you're not familiar with the Apalachicola area, they received quite a bit of damage from Hurricane Micheal about a month ago. They mostly got storm surge damage and missed the brunt of the storm. The people of the area are saddened by the damage and, at the same time, lucky to have been spared the massive destruction that areas like Mexico Beach got.
When David and I were out scouting for areas for the workshop, we found this flag that looked to be placed into this old pier post from the storm. It has a similarity to the people of this area. It is still hanging on. These people have been through a lot of hard times in the last year and they are still hanging on. They are truly #panhandlestrong.
On this particular morning, we had the group here. I wanted to get a starburst through the holes of the flag, so I positioned myself low, set my aperture to F/22, and waited for the wind to blow the flag in just the right direction.
