Dandelion wish (88/365)

Day 88: When I was a kid, my friends and I would participate in the time-honored tradition of making a wish before blowing the seeds off a dandelion seed head. Wishes, hopes, and dreams are the things that make being a child so special. Fulfilling and living them are what makes being an adult so special.

    terrific capture John - I like the clarity, action and bokeh. It looks like one of those "only one opportunity" shots.

    If it wasn't for this shot, I wouldn't be awake in my class haha . Also, I see the awesome bokehs produced from that 50mm of yours. Somethings that caught my eyes were the sharpness of the dandelions, my favorite color green, and the bokehs. Excellent shot.
