Wild Sunflowers in our Neighborhood
Just arrived from our 19-day excursion in Scandinavia/California. It was the first time I didn't bring my pro cameras. Just my faithful iPhone 7 plus. I'm actually happy with some of the images I captured but they would require some minor post processing. I'll try to post some images on this blog as soon as they are processed.
During the entire trip, I felt liberated without a camera strapped on my neck. As I mentioned in my previous post, photography is a young man's sport. It requires waking up early to catch the golden hour, a lot of walking while hauling a couple of cameras, maybe an extra lens for backup, photo gears such as filters and cleaning kit, maybe a tripod, more walking - all of these guaranteed to eventually break one's back as time goes on. Thanks to advancement in technology, the handy smartphone can capture some decent photos when done appropriately. But I'm not ready to get rid of my photography equipment. Not just yet.
This sunflower arrangement was taken with the iPhone. Found and took some home today while fetching our mails at our mail box, which was a bock away from our house here in Georgetown, Texas. A lot of these are just wild and they're huge. As they say: everything is big in Texas. Hope you enjoy.
