2013 Sunflower Series – 01

“Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.” – Henry Ward Beecher

Love is a Flame

Love is a Flame

I chose today’s image for a few reasons:  One, sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers, thus the sunflower series.  Two, yesterday was my birthday and the quote certainly speaks to me about love and the depth of love.  As I age, my love for others grows deeper and deeper.  Three, a dear friend gave me a bouquet with sunflowers in it to warm my day. And four, my wonderful husband gave me a new lens, the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm 1:2.8 ED.  I love macro photography so this was such a thoughtful and special gift for me.  It is a joy to use and as you can see, it helps capture life quite eloquently.

    • Thank you Meryl. You are so correct, unique images of sunflowers are few and far between. They are photographed so often. Glad you liked this one. I think when we add words to an image it helps with the character and adds strength even to images that were already strong on their own. Blessings to you! Robyn
