I took this shot as we were being transported via hayride to the parking area from the Homes for Our Troops Sporting Clays event this past weekend in Fulshear, Texas. The road we were going down was lined with flags so I timed a few shots so that a flag would be in the background. I held the camera over my head and took "no look" shots. This photo really has an emotional impact on me for its patriotic and family themes. I like it a lot from a photojournalistic point of view as well since patriotism and family were two significant themes of the Homes for our Troops event.
