Sunflowers on a Saturday

In between Dallas and Austin (more specifically in between Italy, Texas and Waxahachie, Texas) lies a few giant sunflower fields. I wanted to photograph them as soon as I learned of their existence. It was a cloudy day when I made it out there with Anita and Ashley, so the flowers were drooping. I never thought so much about sunflowers but now that I’ve seen these in person, the thought of them now makes me smile. Also, a coworker of mine calls people suffering from infatuation, love, or crushes, sunflowers because their gazes follow the objects of their affections similarly to sunflowers moving to face the sun. Isn’t that an adorable analogy?

  • What a gorgeous place to take photos! Also, you’re inspiring me to learn how to work a fancy camera. :)

  • That’s darling. And gosh, I really wanna frolic in a sunflower field! You are getting better with that camera!

    i so wanted to stop and take pics the first time i saw those fields, but the kids were sleeping (and it’s frowned upon to leave kids unattended in a car while you try to take pics of flowers on the side of the highway, hehe). the second time we made that drive, the sunflowers were all heads down. :(

    • :( Yeah they were mostly drooping for us too. Poor sunflowers are missing their sun!
