Sunflower Dreaming The young woman who lives with me for one more month, Veronica, twisted my arm to take her to the sunflower fields at McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area.  Norma wanted to go, too, so we loaded up the car and went to the field. Veronica said that one of her dreams has always been to run through a field of sunflowers.  Well, the sunflowers were a little past their peak, and most of them had their heads drooped down, under the weight of their own seed heads.  But I asked her if she would agree to be my model for a photo shoot, and of course she said yes.  We had fun figuring out different poses and how to deal with the sometimes bright sun.  After our photo shoot session, Veronica did run up and down one of the rows, but there were tall weeds in places, and plenty of bees, so it was a fairly cautious run.  The backsides are beautiful, too. Sunflower and Chicory We walked around the big field and down to the smaller one.  l also experimented with some multiple exposure shots.  All in all, we had a good morning. Veronica and Norma took naps when they got home.  Me?  Blog writing and photo processing. Multiple Exposure One of my favs from today's session. Thanks, Veronica, for a great modeling session and a great walk! Save the date!  Monday, September 2, will be the last day of my year long photo walk project, and I'm planning a big celebration walk with anyone who wants to join me!  September 2 is also Labor Day, so many of you will have the day off.  The walk will be in downtown Frederick, around 9 a.m., followed by a brunch.  More details will be posted on my blog as they get confirmed.  But mark your calendars, grab your cameras, put on your walking shoes, and join me for my final Daily Photo Walk.  Let's jam the streets of Frederick with photo walkers!  Click on any photo to enlarge it. ************************************************* Forward me by email any receipt for an online donation made to the Red Cross for disaster relief, and I will send you a 5x7 print of your choice from any of my daily photo walks or from my website.  Offer good until September 2, 2013.
