Last Wish of the Summer: For AAW "Seasons" and Assignement52 "On the Street Where You Live."

I dedicate this summer to the dandelion, the sometimes flower, sometimes weed. I've used it to learn backlighting, test patterns, and create starburts. Now, as our part of the world bids adieu to summer, I say farewell to my friend the dandelion. Here's one of the stragglers still holding on in my front lawn.

    Nice dof! The B & W emphasizes the end of the line for the straggler.

    I love dandelions! You captured nice detail and a lovely bokeh background in this shot. I like the B&W choice also.

    Could have guessed this was you because it's another dandelion shot! This photo makes me want to cry. Great processing to show how drained of life things are becoming. Lovely bokeh.
