Poppy

Flourish of Gray

Flower, Poppy, Monochrome, B&W, Macro

This is a close-up look at the center of a poppy. The tissue-paper-like texture of the poppy petals make an interesting frame for the flower’s center.

This bloom started as a very bright red.  I decided to take a different turn and make it a black and white image.

Flowing Silk Linens

This is a simple, yet elegant, poppy bloom from the flower bed near our back door.  The petals reminded me of linens on a clothes line, flowing under the influence of a warm summer breeze.

It’s original color was the typical poppy red, but I decided to process it as a monochrome image. I love the subtle variations in tone and texture that are not as noticeable with the color version.

Beside my wife’s flower bed, sprouting from a crack in the sidewalk, we have a cluster of sweet, tiny, pink poppies that appeared on their own.

I took this photo in the early morning hours.  I call it Twirling Floral Skirt because it reminds me of a young girl spinning around to make her skirt flow out.

Poppy Progression

Poppies are some of my favorites. The colors are always vibrant, the multi-layer petals are interesting and the center provides a natural focal point.

This photo shows the poppies in three stages – the pre-bloom bud, the bud just beginning to burst forth, and full, glorious bloom.

This is one of the first poppies to bloom and fade in our spring garden.  I applied a texture to the image.  To me, it didn’t seem right to gaze upon its unfiltered demise.

Poppy’s Purple Passion


This time of year you’ll see me post a lot of flowers.  After the long winter, they are hard to resist.

This is a close -up of the very first Poppy to pop in Sara’s flower bed.  I took the photo two days ago and it’s already gone – the victim of a strong breeze.  However, there are several others that have taken it’s place.

Poppies are some of our favorites.  I suspect I’ll post more before the blooming is done.

The Center of Passion

There is something about this image that captivates me. I’d like to say it was taken in some exotic location, but it wasn’t. It is the center of a poppy from the flower bed beside our home.

Of course, it’s the rich, deep red of the petals that initially grab me.  However,  it’s the purple center, ringed by the dark seeds, that keep me staring.

I realize this is one of those images that either trips your trigger…or not.   Feel free to leave a comment, either way.
