Black-Eyed Susan

I was digging through my old photos when I ran across a shot I took in 2005. I had completely forgotten about this photo and it really struck me as probably one of my strongest photos. I haven’t the foggiest idea why I let this one slip through the cracks but it happened. It goes to show you the importance of not deleting your photos (storage is really quite cheap) and the fact that your opinion of a photo can change over time.


The photo was taken at the Memorial Grove Park in Salt Lake City, Utah. I had stopped by there to shoot flowers after returning from a photo trip up Little Cottonwood Canyon. The skies were overcast and I hadn’t really tried to shoot flowers before so I gave it a shot. I remember what struck me about these flowers was their bright yellow petals and the purple flowers providing ground cover underneath them.
