One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Vintage Poppy

An Arizona native, the Prickly Poppy was in bloom everywhere on my recent visit to my friends Melinda and Lonnie in Prescott, AZ.  While we savored Barnstar Brewery’s Chocolate Porter in the shade of a huge oak tree in nearby Skull Valley, I noticed this poppy.  It was very bright when I took the shot of this white flower in the harsh midday sun and I’m sure the couple of glasses of the delicious chocolate flavored brew clouded my judgment about taking a photograph in this glaring light, but take it I did.  I actually got a decent exposure but decided to give it a vintage look using a vintage preset in Luminar.
