I love sunflower season. Therefore, it wouldn’t be right to skip the subject. If you are reading this as seeing the title, you’re probably a sunflower lover too.
I was traveling down the highway and noticed this big brush of what looks like weeds. As I got closer, I realized there were sunflowers in the mixture of the weeds and some other type of colorful flowers. There were so many sunflowers it caught my attention for a while. I kept imagining myself photographing it and creating wall art. I thought about about the photograph each time I passed the brush in the median on the rode.
As a photographer whenever I continue to have day dreams about a subject. I have to create the image. I’ve stopped on many roads to capture a scene and this isn’t any different for me.
Now, I’m walking down the road with my camera on hand. I use to wonder what passerby’s thought of me, but ask me do I care now. It’s probably my maturity level. At some point a lady starts not to care what everyone thinks…hehe It was exciting to finally photograph this brush of flowers. I can’t photograph your typical flower shot front on. No, not me.
As I created a few images I pondered over why all of the sunflowers were pointing in the same direction. Is it because it is peak season for sunflowers in Georgia right now? What is this about they always point east? I took out my iPhone and checked the compass. Wow! They are pointing east. Some people say they face the sun. I know that isn’t true because the sun is behind them sometimes.
It’s true it is peak season and they will bloom until the early fall. They are drought tolerant, because of their extensive root system. You never see anyone out on the roads watering sunflowers. Its an easy low maintenance flower. This means if I kill a sunflower, I need to hang up the gardening tools.
I hear too many myths
My favorite shot
about them facing east at sunrise and west at sunset. I have not found anything to support this statement . Therefore, I will leave this along. They are just beautiful , low maintenance and often times the flower heads are pointing in the same direction.
I’m doing a series of videos on mens capsule wardrobe on Youtube. You should really check me out ! I’m starting out really slow, but I’m warming up to some great content. The first video on the subject is about my favorite look out of every occasion, is the evening look. It’s just something about a man in a suit! Yeah, I know I’m hitched and all, but I’m speaking in general.
A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essentials that never go out of style. The shirts, slacks, jackets and shoes. It’s the must haves in a mans closet that should be obtained to build around the non essentials.
I won’t go into much detail here. check me out here on my channel and see what I have to say. I’d love for you to stop by and say hello. Leave a message in the comment section to inform me you are one of my wonderful beauties from my blog. I’d love to hear from you or read from you there. Hehehe…
At some point you really have to do your own research. I’ve always heard an apple a day will keep the doctor away. Did anyone ever specify if a regular apple or an organic apple mattered?
Apples contain nutrients that are friendly to the skin. The benefits of eating apples include antioxidants , fiber, vitamin c and potassium. According to experts the peel of the apple contains anti growth fighting activities against cancer. It’s weird there isn’t a cure for cancer, but somehow experts no exactly what to eat to help prevent it. Huh…
Have you noticed the shiny pretty apples that has a longer shelf life than the dull apples? They are usually filled with pesticides to coat the exterior of the fruit. However, that pesticide enters the apple. This means you’re ingesting pesticide. By which you are trying to eat healthy. How backwards is this? Guess what? According to experts pesticides cause cancer.
Buy the ugly dry dull apples. No, they don’t last long on the shelf. They aren’t meant to be a display on your kitchen. Eat them. Get a quality apple slicer, because some are flimsy and will break after a few uses. It’s not just the dull apples, make sure they are organic.
Things you can eat to include apples in your diet:
- If you eat toast, eggs, chicken apple sausage with apples slices
- Peanut butter and apples slices for snack
- Wheat crackers, dairy free cheese and apple slices
- Oatmeal with apple slices
- Pancakes and apple slices…you get the gist
Eat organic apples. A healthy diet begins with fruits and veggies. I hope you love my pictures. I love photography and I always try to use my images for every blog.
Clothing should be a means to make you look and feel great. Weather you realize it or not, there are some mistakes you may be making. Its nice to have knowledge of the latest fashions, but everything you see in the magazines isn’t for everyone. Also be aware some things aren’t for anyone. Have you seen pieces such as that? it makes you wonder what the designer was thinking.
Since fall is creeping our way, lets look at the cable knit sweater. Its heavy, and admittedly it does the job to keep me warm. However, it can be one of the most strangest looking sweaters when worn. What happen to my waistline? It disappeared in the sweater. The cable knit is the most frumpy sweater one can wear for sure. Look at it paired with my Ann Taylor A-line skirt. The contrast is beautiful , but the look, not so much!
The sweater needs to fit tighter down the side of the seams. It would have worked if it were lose fitting without the elastic at the hemline. Perhaps it would look nice with slits on each side of the sweater. This would cause it to drape the skirt more. This is too heavy of a sweater , it’s weighing me down. The sweater is a size small, but you’d never know by the fit. Never forget the female shape when choosing a sweater. Remember quality over quantity. Choose your clothes wisely. They should always look flattering to your figure.
