Friday night photos is just a feature to remind me to share pictures I'm taking to practice using my camera, and this time I was shooting sunflowers growing in my yard. Even though sunflowers start appearing well before September, I'll always associate them with the month school starts.
Most years I cut some and take them to school so we can paint sunflowers. It's the perfect elementary school art project, because kids love to paint, and just about every kid can paint something that looks a lot like a sunflower.
Personally I think sunflowers are pretty photogenic even when they're past their prime and losing their petals.
I also like the stark look of this sunflower head with only a few very straggly petals barely hanging on. Anyone else like the look of sunflowers, and are there sunflowers growing where you live?
