Sunflowers stand in a cut and pick field outside of Bremerhaven, Germany. Passing the field on my motorcycle I did a doubletake and doubled back. I parked by the potato stand across from the field and marched over to the flowers dressed in a full motorcycle suit complete with squeaky offroad boots. I resembled some kind of space-suited stormtrooper. Somehow, this alien presence comes across in the flowers thanks to the magical alchemy of infrared photography.
