16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A Sunflower State of Mind
This image was taken at a nearly 50 year old home in my neighborhood. Growing up I've always passed by this home and admired at how beautiful it was; every holiday the owners would decorate it with blow up dolls and sparkling lights, and their garden has the most beautiful sunflowers. In July 2018, I saw the most perfect, nearly flawless sunflower in the garden, and I was mesmerized by how beautiful nature can be. So, I took a picture of it on my iPhone, and I continue to cherish it as one of my best photos.
