Sunflowers at Vauxhall city farm, Vauxhall, London

Why this photo? I am a fan of sunflowers and in this image I find the contrast between the yellow of the flowers and the green of the leaves interesting. I also like shallow depth of field and here the focus is in the flower and the trees and a lamp post in the background are out of focus. Urban elements through the lamp post are visible, however this feels like a corner of nature, in the middle of the city – Vauxhall, a busy and noisy area. The city farm offers some moments of piece and quiet.
