Seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary
I like it when you can take something either very ordinary and plain, or even something that you would normally consider an eyesore and make it interesting or beautiful in a photograph. I had this weed that kept popping up in my back yard. It had a very thick stalk and very broad leaves, so I decided to let one grow and see what it did. It ended up being a very large sunflower plant. It's now about 6 feet high. One evening last week I noticed a couple of flower pods were about to open. I thought they were interesting and the soft light was kind of nice so I grabbed a couple of shots. I really liked this one.
