The second time I visited the scene, the sign had changed to “For Lease.” The business was gone but, on the porch, the flag still flew. This time I wanted to examine the scene from several points of view.
Today the sign is gone, the flag is gone. Is this scene a metaphor for the decay and loss of the American Dream?
I do plan to return to the site and photograph the empty window and flagless front porch.
This photograph is entitled “American Dream II.”
