Sunflowers - a diversion / by Hugh Rawson

A lovely evening with old friends (old friends who brought sunflowers) and a Bank Holiday weekend complete with a grey, overcast Sunday morning all compounded to make me dig out the tripod and make the most of the soft natural light.

It's not my usual way - it's slow and requires thought, careful thought. Not to mention a big change in settings and lens. But, they tell me, it's good to slow down and think more carefully about what you are shooting. And you can drink coffee while you do it - a million miles from street photography.
