I've been pretty much house-bound for a month after having hip surgery, and have finally been getting out to take care of some errands.

My friend ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' RLangs was driving me around, and he needed a particular light bulb, and wanted to know if I knew of a hardware store in the area. I'm lucky enough to have one of the last general-purpose hardware stores, with whatever you need from building a stone wall to logging ... and people who know what you need. You can literally buy a single wingnut or washer if that's what you need.

While parked in front I noticed how the lighting allowed for the side mirror to show the reflection of the sign and flag in the car window, making the sign right-reading again, and took pictures using the mirror to frame the sign and flag, with the focus on those objects in the (apparent) distance.

I have some shots which show the flag on both sides (a single and a double reflection), but they seemed too small to easily appreciate those details in the challenge environment.
