I had never noticed the delicateness of the dandelion, and the stark contrast between the petite flower and the grand background. The dandelion is representative of how I feel growing up: something delicate and small in the grand scheme of things, however eventually I will evolve into someone who has a larger impact on the world, just as the dandelion will eventually blow away into all directions and join the grand scheme.
This photo has great details. Up close, dandelions look a lot pricklier than they do from far away.
I really love how you used macro instead of a grand landscape. It is a very powerful image and I’ve never noticed what they really look like, cameras give a better view than the naked eye. Great image! 🙂
