My mom grew these poppies in her garden (she’s amazing) & she brought a bunch of them to welcome us to our new home. Even though I was supposed to be unpacking boxes, and not playing with my camera, the light in my new kitchen, these poppies… I couldn’t resist. I have hardly done anything to this image, it is practically SOOTC, they really were this colour, they really were this lovely. : )

This is my 36th work for my 52 week challenge.

Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/100
Av( Aperture Value ) 6.3
ISO Speed 200
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
