15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This photo was taken to capture joy. It is meant to communicate the joy of childhood. I sought to place the focus on the dandelion to show the movement of the seeds to reflect passing time, but the sweet remembrance of blowing off the seeds as they float through the air. I remembered so many sweet times being with family and friends, excitedly plucking the dandelions and blowing the seeds off to scatter in the wind.
