Here’s an asymmetrically composed photograph of an asymmetric sunflower. I hope you’ll take this double negative, along with the combination of bright yellow and blue, as a positive. As I’ve said many times, there’s nothing common about the “common” sunflower, Helianthus annuus.

I took this photograph on July 20 on the east bank of Waller Creek along Chesterfield Ave. in north-central Austin. Sunflowers typically reach their peak in my part of the world in June, but scattered plants continue to flower through the summer and early fall (and occasionally even late fall, as I reported last December 7).
