Four years ago on this date I launched into what has turned out to be an unbroken sequence of daily posts covering the rest of 2011, all of 2012 through 2014, and all of 2015 so far. To commemorate that, today I’ll begin a miniseries of one previously unshown picture a day from each of those five calendar years. Following that, you’ll have a fourth round of photographs from the great February trip to New Zealand, then some more Texas pictures, then a fifth and final round from New Zealand. After all that, it may finally be time to slow the pace a bit and post less obsessively, as you sane people do. That’s still likely to mean pictures frequently, even if not every day. (I know, I said the same thing a year ago, so let’s see what happens.)
The wildflower that appeared in these pages most often in 2011 was the sunflower, so here from June 7, 2011, on the Blackland Prairie in far northeast Austin is an abstract take on the opening of a sunflower bud.
