BlueHouseRedPoppies


BlueHouseRedPoppies, originally uploaded by carolWorldLeader.

As soon as I saw this house, I knew I wanted to photograph it. I'm so happy I got this one.

I had to take two shots of this-the first one didn't come out very well. I selected this one because it has just enough blur on the left, by the front porch, and also over on the right by the utility lines.

I tried very hard to get the poppies to "frame" the window. I think this is about as close as I could have gotten. I love the lace curtain and the hint of a light that's on inside the house. I also really like what the tree is doing in the upper left hand corner of the shot.

I think the perspective might be a bit odd, because the poppies were far from the house, but I wanted to get it with all the colors in place.

This is a great shot for me because, well, it can "fit" into several of my working series. It could be just "Georgetown general," or maybe "poppies and flowers" or even "blue" or "red."

This is not really a stand out image, it just fits well with other work. Kind of like a backup singer to a band, it helps fill in those high empty spots and brings the rest of the stuff up a notch (at least, I hope it does.)

Until next time...
