Fireworks and Dandelions

Fireworks and Dandelions

A few years ago, after shooting some dandelion puffballs, I noticed how much they looked like fireworks when seen larger on the computer screen!  I decided to do a composite photo and have worked on it off and on for several years.  I’m not sure it’s where I want it to be yet but thought I would post it on the blog for The 4th of July, 2012.

Have a happy and safe 4th everybody!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
