In May 2021, I published a photo gallery titled “Downtown Danbury Glows At Night”. It was silly but the Hat City photos were really cool.
One of the areas of the city that I focused on was the American Flag on West Street, which is or was very visible from the surrounding blocks. Here is one of the photos I took for the article.
It’s a big flag right there. I took the picture after walking past the library and my back is to Main Street. This was one of the many photos I took of the flag and from all vantage points it towers over the top of the building and the trees.
Since I live a few blocks from this flag, I drive and walk next to it daily and recently noticed something the flag itself seems to have grown bigger and the flagpole looks smaller. Below is a photo I took yesterday (07/20/21).
The mast still reaches the treetops, but not as much as in May, does it? Is this a completely different setup, or am I losing it? If anything happened, it wasn’t yesterday, or the day before, or last week. I have spoken about it many times to my wife and kids who just ignore me because they don’t care.
Do you think the flag is bigger? Is the pole shorter? Is the flag taller and the pole shorter? Is it the same?
I feel like I’m losing my mind here but, maybe not either, it’s possible that I’m on something, and if so, why the cover-up? What do Danbury officials have to hide and why?
