Photo365 – Day 209 – reading the poppy seeds

A bearded bloke is going to cross my path…

I started taking photos with the poppy head attached to the stalk with the sky behind…using flash and underexposing the cloudy sky, then I moved over to the glass patio table. The bare shots look pretty average so I printed out one of my colourful poppy shots and propped that up behind the head so the reflection appeared behind the head. That looked ok, but not what I wanted to share here. So then I tipped out some seeds and photographed the head with seeds. And then I moved a few around and started to create the face…and ended up with this shot with the sky reflected in the table as the backdrop.

I do enjoy messing around with ideas. It was taken with the Pentax K5 and 16-45mm lens.
