Reaching for the Sun

Uploaded: July 20, 2011

Description

A lone Oxeye Sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides) growing out of a brick wall.

Backstory: We have this old brick carriage house at the end of our driveway, and in the spring, I noticed a plant growing out from between the plants, towards the top of the structure. I let it be, just to see what it would end up being, and this morning, one of the kids noticed it had bloomed, so I had to get a shot of it. Kind of a testament to the resiliency of nature. LOL

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.

You learn by doing. Take your next online photography class.
