End of Summer by Kirsten Bruening

September 22th marks the first day of fall, which sadly and subsequently, marks the official ending of summer. Summer is a season that represents youth, carefree attitudes, beauty, and free spirited living. So when it's time to say good bye to summer, it can always feel a little sad. The first flower begins to lose their petals, the sun stands lower and there is a soft light early in the morning. And yet we should look forward to autumn and winter, like Albert Camus said, "In the deep of winter I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

This close-up photograph of a closed sunflower blossom was taken on a hot summer day in our garden. While I was working in the garden it occurred to me to photograph the buttons and not the flower.
