Poppy from the Archives

April 14, 2018

Our poppies won’t be out until next month, but here’s a poppy from 2011 while we’re waiting. Having run out of relatively current photographs, I’m creating this post April 13 from an image taken before this blog began. Tomorrow, which is today when you’re reading this, I will be out scouting interesting fresh bits of the material world. If I am successful, you’ll start seeing what I found April 15.

  1. I can almost feel the textures of the papery petals and the fuzzy buds and leaves.

    • Poppies are so sensual, aren’t they? Thanks for writing, Clare.

  3. Thanks, Ken. This time I didn’t say (although it’s mostly true), “I don’t photograph flowers.”

    Stunning reminder of what Spring brings in northern climes. This is when my garden came alive with such a variety of lovely shapes and colors.
    Thank you!

    • Thanks, Adrian. I consider some of my photographs of rocks as portraits but hadn’t thought of any of my flower photographs this way.

  6. What an intense splash of color, poppies are just wonderful, aren’t they?
