The New York Stock Exchange Building on Wall Street, New York, New York (USA). I only wish I'd had a slightly wider lens!

Photographed in 2002 (September) on my Minolta 35mm SLR.

Once again your amazing talent for capturing images that really bring out the emotion of your subjects astounds us all. It is quite clear here that the message you are trying to convey is about the current socioeconomic turmoil taking place in the united states. The flag is covering the windows into the stock exchange is a powerful message, symbolizing the covered eyes of the american economy to the world as a whole, blinding them from seeing things that are far more obvious to those on the outside looking in. The three smaller flags represent the American government, guarding the world inside from a view of the outside, to protect those trapped within it's borders from the "threats" of the outside world. The darkness behind the flag, is a message about the devious behavior that goes on behind the scenes, in the darkness, and away from prying eyes. This is a very powerful statement that has been captured here, I'm speechless....
Iain Myrans: Where do you come up with this stuff!?? lol.
