a field of poppies

I took these pictures last spring at Alessandra Jacobson’s house in Fall Creek. It was dusk, and when I realized I didn’t have enough light to get the pictures I wanted, I remembered what the orchid expert Alexander Damian taught me about taking flower photos: Use your flash. I’m posting these today for my friend Deb and for my Mom, who loves to paint flowers.
