"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

You have created a very dramatic image of this once lovely flower.

@Ruthiebear: yes, any sunflower is very lovely, but dried looks so artistic, so beautiful. besides, it has its whole life behind just like an old woman, wrinkled with dry skin, but still alive eyes ....
