The Poppies

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” -Ansel Adams

I saw this quote today and it reminded me of a goal I set myself when I got my first DSLR- that I would try to bring my camera with me to as many places as possible and ‘make’ a photo out of any situation.  Welp, that hasn’t really happened as planned.  So, today, I will start!

Poppies (CA state flower, woot!) seem to only show up every so often in a year, so when I walked by a small patch of them in someone’s yard, I thought I would capture it on camera in case they were gone the next time I walked by.  Aren’t they beautiful?
