I’m not sure why I like photographing sunflowers. A year ago, I was shooting fields of them and a few weeks ago, I was after them again. I never thought of sunflowers as a cash crop. The seeds? Yes. The flowers? No. But there they were, at the Williamsburg, VA, farmers’ market. Dozens of dozens were for sale. Next to the sunflower vendor was a soup seller with a Golden Retriever hawking his product. They both made good subjects but the pup was a lot cuter—though about as animated as the flowers.
Hoden Beach, NC. Williamsburg, VA. Where will the next crop of helianthus annuus find me?
