Off topic: Huntington's Memorial Arch

Along Fourpole Creek in Huntington WV is a walking trail. On the other side of the street from the creek and the trail is Memorial Arch, built in the 1920s as a scale model of the famous arch in Paris. It was built to honor those who served in the Great War, as it was called then.

On this July day, a large flag hung from the inside of the arch. The arch faces west, so I allowed the late afternoon sun to light up the flag. And this is what my camera saw.
