In late July, I decided to head out and try to photograph the Marblehead Veterans Middle School.  I had previously scouted the area and thought I would try for a long exposure image.  While I had a few ideas in mind, none were panning out quite as I had hoped.  As I was ready to pack up and leave empty-handed, I noted the old lettering at the top of the building denoting this as the former Marblehead High School and the proximity of the American flag.

I ended up on my back looking up at this scene as it was the only way to get a wide enough view and bring both elements into place.  The partially cloudy skies helped to bridge the gap between the two elements and black and white brought out the textures throughout.
