When I saw the title of this week’s photo challenge, I immediately knew which picture to choose. Although my selection process shared everything with the topic, the reasons behind it do not, and are best described by the caption:
An American flag, a sunflower, and marigolds on a bright day…July 4th, Independence Day to be exact, but what I saw in my viewfinder gave me time tunnel vertigo, that cartwheel-into-the-past disorientation that toys with calendars and realities. Sure, I saw the flag and flowers in front of me, but mainly as conjurers of sunny days and holidays past.
I had to remind myself, “This is July 4, 2011.”
Simple can be complicated.
Until next time.
