A flag in Toro

I’ve been surprised to find that this challenge is harder than I expected – maybe the hardest one yet for me.  There are plenty of flags around, but I’ve been looking for one that would work well in a photo with a bike.  It’s a problem – the flags are always way up in the sky, the bike down on the ground.  You can include the bike, and get such a tiny image of the flag that it doesn’t do anything; or you can zoom in on the flag, and lose the bike.  Where’s ET when you need him, pedaling through the sky above a flagpole?

Finally round one reasonably down to earth though, in Toro.  A good thing.  I was starting to think I was going to have to do something foolish and embarrassing to get my bike up high somehow.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Looks like the guy climbed the ladder to get on the balcony??
    Great flag, and the pennant shadows too.

      Yes. He’s up there hanging the flag for some event unfolding in the square.

    A challenging challenge indeed! You nailed it. And the flag shadows are the bonus.

    What a great shot!

    I’m having trouble just finding a flag… let alone getting my bike with it!
