I'd love to have a go at this, but time is not on my side. I may have to be a wall flower.

Not sure if I will have time to do another or stick with this one. I know it`s early for this theme but loved the ceramic poppies at the Tower of London installation so much had to do something with one of my images. Not sure if this one is a fair entry as I took a shot of an old war  book  poster I had to get the outline then used my own full poppy shot  transposed to get this. Might need something more I think or might get a more fine art type entry together at the weekend but just in case. If my picture of another image is unfair you feel comment and I`ll withdraw it.

We've had guests with us all week, and they've just gone home. The only flower we had about the place was this rose on it's last legs:



I decided to muck about with the little Fuji and a flash. I've been dead lazy editing it too - just used Lightroom.

If I can get a better subject over the weekend I might have another go, but this is it for now. :)

Jinky, I love what you have done, I have no problems with that as an entry - it did say do something 'arty'.

Here is mine for this week, I've just had some knee surgery so am a little 'contained'. But the magnolia buds are finally out and spring is on the way.

Im gonna really work this one - it's very 'me' and I hope to produce something I can print, frame and sell. Not necessarily going for a winning entry here, so long as I produce something I can sell. I have several ideas, hopefully a lot of today to myself and fresh batteries for flashes. I now have 2speed lights and a ring flash so if I can't produce something arty I may as well give up!

Im going in.................................
