Photo on Friday #3

Texture and shape intrigue me whether its nature or man made.

These poppy heads were in my garden.  I have added some heavy filters on them to blur some of the features, add a grainy effects as an overlay and softened the edges. Colour wise I went for a monochrome effect, the contrast of light and shade.

This neutral palette allows the features on the top of the poppy heads and the fragile decay on the side would show up as the strongest elements of the photo.

What would you use from this photo to make art?


  1. Fab photo! I like the star shaped circles (does that make sense?!) at the end of the buds - make perfect stamps!

    1. I've been thinking about that as well, circles and lines!

  2. Same as Gabrielle, stars, circles, lines and shadows. Fab picture loving the filters:-) xxx

  3. Transferred onto a canvas would be lovely x

  4. Beautiful, Tis good to appreciate the little things! Could use the photo as a centrepoint and use shapes to surround it! X

  5. Wonderful photo Jo! Can't wait to see what you do with it. Xx

  6. Beautiful photo and amazing nature! The head lid looks like a umbrella and it has the arches, is it a air conditioner? Oh! very interesting shape. I'm looking forward what you do with it. xx
