You’ve undoubtedly heard the foto gurus say you should always carry your camera with you. It probably sounds like a good idea, but you may not think that’s for everyone. Well, here’s a little image I made on the way to work one morning. I walked past it, looked, took about two more steps, then realized I needed to record the image. Here it is.

This could also be titled, “Un Hommage to Paul Caponigro.” Caponigro is one of the most influential photographers for me, and he did a series of sunflower photos. I’ve tried a few and never came close to Caponigro’s beautiful images. It may be that I was standing on a busy sidewalk hand-holding my camera and didn’t want to make a spectacle of myself. (I have another ‘hommage’ in my files somewhere. I’ll dig it out and share it with you. In the meantime, look Caponigro up and see some of his photos. You’ll be glad you did.)

I’ll keep working on the sunflowers and see if I can come within arm’s reach of Caponigro. You should start carrying your camera with you. You never know what you’ll come across.

BTW, I’ve been pretty slow in blogging through July. I’ll see if I can pick it up in August.
