My take on a Poppy theme
I set this up for members of my Camera Club.....all that rust ??? !!! was the cry...lol..they all had a go at it though I think they expected something much more 'girlie'.
Lit from one side by early evening light coming from a window,opposite was my small lightbox to try & cast some extra light onto the hook & chain.
The base is an old lump of sacking.
Thank you for taking the time to look/comment.
Sorry I have not been around much to comment,just a few swift clicks & running...I have a really poorly Mum at the moment,awaiting a rather big operation on her heart,so she has taken my time & thoughts up of late
For anyone interested, this image was judged last Friday as part of a panel of three (you can see the other two in my pf),well when they went onto the display box, total silence fell in the room & the judge began wringing his hands wondering what to say,at first he said it was slightly macabre but then the storyline descended upon him & his comments were really quite complimentary."So very different for 'Club' photography" & "I wish I could see inside the author's mind" were a couple of comments made by the judge,he smiled a lot,shook his head a bit & walked around the room for a while whilst he thought & thought.
He pondered for ages & at the end he decided to award it 3rd place ( the winner was me too with a set of 'childs play' images...also in my pf...there ya go Chris,the Teddies made it !!)
I don't think he quite knew what to do with the bird stuff but it did make me smile !
I did promise I would let you all know what happened.
I bagged second place too but don't tell anyone ...I had a rather good night
