a shot of the second fairhaven veteran’s memorial flagpole in bellingham, wa, usa taken when it was new. the painted metal pole is 100ft tall and replaced the earlier wooden pole after it collapsed. it stands above the memorial wall listing those from whatcom county who’ve lost their lives in the usa’s wars. shot by leaning backwards until my head was resting on the pole to get as much of the reflection as possible

see the whole flag and pole here
