Ernst, the flag is no longer there, nor the other accoutrements. I'm not sure the building is occupied at present. Thanks for taking a look.

Nice capture Bob !!! I too, often wonder about the backstory with images such as this. I've seen them and shot them time and time again and I usually let them lie, but still, the curiosity is there. I suppose the mystery of it all is at best without imposing.

David, unlike the photos that were taken in Tempe, this was taken in Scottsdale. 2/3 of the subjects photographed in Tempe were people with whom I was acquainted, at least to the point that I recognized them from crossing paths numerous times. Jacquelyn was the only one whose name I knew. Even then, I did not know any of them conversationally. Their stories are almost completely unknown to me. This person is unique in that he blatantly sleeps in this location and the police let him. Other than that all are people whose paths just happen to intersect mine and I have a camera with me. The oddity here is that it was taken on one of my sleepless nights, and he was soundly sleeping. I was out wandering around and taking night photos.

The shadows suggest late in the day, while the processing has that old-time-movie late-night look. Well done! S-

St3v3, there is a street light causing the "daylight" appearance. I am aware of the old movie night effects. Thanks for looking and commenting.
