Heading for the country roads without my morning coffee could be dangerous in itself. But it was a beautiful morning and I was ready to go, no detours or waiting for the Kuerig. 5 miles later I found a patch of wild sunflowers in a ditch. They chose a wheat field for a nice backdrop. It was skimpy compared to the thick fields I'd just seen in North Dakota but it came with a nice place to park my car and a tree (they are scarce here).
After a few shots it was time to set up the video and tripod so I would be able to steal still shots of myself jumping and dancing around in the flowers. Care was required to not look foolish as pickups buzzed past. The movies were hilarious, don't count on me showing any here. Well, I may give in….
