Make a Wish

“Photo is a small voice, at best, but sometimes – just sometimes – one photograph or a group of them can lure our senses into awareness. Much depends upon the viewer; in some, photographs can summon enough emotion to be a catalyst to thought.”  

– W. Eugene Smith

In the Victorian Language of Flowers the Dandelion represents faithfulness, happiness, and love’s oracle.  To little children, a dandelion is a fuzzy flower with the purpose of wishing upon, or maybe, a pretty flower to give to Mommy, whom they love so much.    I thought the above quote was a nice compliment to the images of dandelions because the images of the dandelions summon emotions and thoughts of childhood memories and wishes made, and remind of the hope of wishes to come.  Because just sometimes, wishes do come true.
