I was driving my car, looking for parking space, when I spotted this lone  sunflower standing behind the rusted fences. Its radiant beauty, indefatigable amidst the decrepit urban landscape, caught my imagination. Heedless of the hot summer sun, I got down and took this shot with the only camera I had on me — my mobile cellphone.
