I was on my way home and pass an old vintage water tower that looked pretty cool. But the lighting wasnt that great. So I keep driving around try to find a good shot. Just when i had given in and was headed home. I spot this WWII Howitzer out front of a VFW hall. The Texas sunset was in the background along with the Stars and Stripes. So I got lucky on this one.

Totally cool and has a lot of meaning. I like that you aren't looking down the barrel of it. Is that a 21 gun salute or a 21 inch gun salute? Colors seem a little drab but it also looks like maybe late in the day, but not sure. Maybe curveswould help.

Good luck

I think the border is way too much..it takes away from the canon's hole..

Interesting idea I just wish the end of the barrel wasn't chopped off...the crop is a bit too tight.
