Photo 101 : A pop of colour

For today’s photo, I have chosen the red poppies at the base of the remembrance tree of the 39th battalion. In the background, is the sculpture of the Driver by C S Jagger. I wanted to capture both the poppies and the sculpture and so had to get this photo from a very low point of view.


As always, I have attached more photos that I hope ties in with the theme.

    1. Thanks Anne. Looks like everyone uses the yellow house as a marker in the village. Instructions to our apartment was like “drive straight to the yellow house (You won’t miss it) and turn left”.

  1. Beautiful shots. I especially love the starling. We have a few varieties in Tanzania and they are just as brightly coloured.

      1. We have a the superb starling in Tanzania, which has that metallic blue with a bright orange breast. They are a stunning bird.

Tell me what you think!
