From the galleries on NetworkPhotographers.com we chose Flags Over America, a feature by Barry Lewis. There are forty two images in the gallery, showing the US flag or Stars & Stripes derivatives, in a wide variety of contexts. Our own choices were made to support the contention that this icon is possessed of an amazing resilience. If human advancement, such as it is, began with symbolic representation, then the ability to differentiate between reality and representation is something devoutly to be wished in associates, and indeed the citizenry at large, if that is not too big a hope.

Jules Laforgue (1860-1887)
"Ah! que la vie est quotidienne."
Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
'Complainte sur certains ennuis' (1885)
