If you have been following my blog, you know I had some photographic wishes. The Sunflower field was one of them. One day on our way into town off of the main road we saw a field full of sun shiny yellow…what a sight for sore eyes. I got so excited I nearly peed my pants. There are only two very small fields of sunflowers in our area. I took these photos on August 16, 2009.
What a happy place to be!!
I wanted to be taller, I stood inside the car with the door open, hanging on to the roof rack..I really needed a step ladder. I was tempted to crawl up on top of the car..but I didn’t. Far Guy just said " Would you just be careful."
There were lots of bees, I am not nearly as afraid of them as I have been other years. I have taken lots of photos of bees this summer and luckily I have not been stung..yet. I have also managed to escape the Poison Ivy and except for that one almost I think he might have been dead snake in the road..I have not been dissolved into a crying, can’t breathe panic stricken Ophidiophobic. I have only suffered with my food allergies on one occasion all summer.. and that was a beautiful little strawberry..that caused me to breathe funny for awhile..but I was no where near death this time. So it was a pretty good summer. Back to the sunflowers..
I went back again on September 02, 2009 to the same field. What a difference seventeen days makes. There were still some bees..and lots of grain dust.. the cheerful yellow is almost gone.. I found it kind of sad. This time I was alone, so I tried my best to hold my camera high in the air instead of climbing all over the car:)
