Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' - April 19, 2024

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' a bit out of the norm this week.  I am partial to it though. 

Sandpoint Realty Friday Flag

While sitting in the living room I caught this out of the corner of my eye.  Reflection in one of my favorite photo's, purchased and signed in Leavenworth Washington from actual photograper.

With the afternoon sun hitting just right and the breeze lifting 'Ole Glory' into the photo, I thought it unique, and worth sharing with you. 

The photographer shared his story how he was behind a log taking this pic when the bear reared up, having sensed him being there.  The photographer shamelessly admitted, that as the bear moved on, he could not get rid of the shakes for an hour after being back in the car.  The shakes being from this magnificent, and intimidating animal, staring directly at him.

Good morning Mark. What a magnificent photo! Surprised his shakes stopped in an hour when back in his car. I likely would have been shaking too badly to get back in my car. Enjoy your day.

Now that's cool and a subtle reminder as well. Even the bear likes the flag.

As described in the post the bear is photo of well known photographer and he told us of his experience when taking the pic.  But I must admit just looking at the pic in the living room gives reason to take note.  m

That is a really cool reflection!  When I used to hike, I would try taking photos of the mountains reflecting in the stream, they turned out really nice.
