SUN FLAG


I chose "Sun Flag" to post today since we could use a little of its brightness. The weather outside my window looks rather gloomy; it may even rain. Though as often happens here the haze could also just burn off by early afternoon. But back to this pic. It reminds me of a stanza in an e.e. cummings poem:

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)


This is one of those photos I edited and re-edited numerous times for various reasons. When I stumbled in frustration on this crop, I was rather relieved. I'd begun to think I'd have to give up on it.

A great composition. And when I saw this photo, I needed its sunshine, too. Thank you!

Good to hear all that fussing with various crops was worth it. We had a really foggy day here again today. Sigh. One gets spoiled living in CA. :-)
