In The Yard – ITY64

At times I am an opportunistic photographer, maybe all photographers are to a certain degree. The sky was blue most of the day and it was going to be a bright sunset. I wasn’t decided on where I should go to catch the last of the light when I noticed the yard had dandelions starting to seed. Well, that changed everything.

The macro lens was still on the camera and there were pockets of sunlight streaking through the trees. I didn’t have to give it a second thought… yard exploring it was! I can imagine my fellow residents of the apartment complex were curious as to why this mad man was crawling around the yard on his knees photographing the weeds. 🙂

This image was the first subject I found. I loved the look of one seed caught while trying to escape. The wind was not quit enough to allow it its freedom. Patience rules as it awaits the next strong breeze…
