17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Little Patriot

My little guy found this flag when we were at a friends house for fireworks. He fell in love with it and carried it around everywhere. I saw the light of the fireworks shining through the flag and quickly handed the baby off to dad so I could snap a few shots. Our other children wanted in on the fun as well and I took turns taking each of their pictures with the flag. I love how this picture epitomizes the love and pride I have for our country.
