"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

What happened here, Mariana? Only 2 comments (three now)?! Poppy isn't Mariana... or what?


However... I love this one. Poppy's always worth to capture, right? Made a poppy-photo only yesterday... ;)

@Magrat: Was busy yesterday , did not post anything and really had a relaxing time ... off of the AM3 :)) Sometimes , it really takes a lot of time to visit back all these friends who are commenting my pictures . And .. I do not like to have any empty date, so this picture I put today, without expectations anybody will see it ;))) That is just for my soul . I love it , colors especially !

Nothing wrong with this lovely poppy-pic. I admire the way you (and one of my other favourites) loadup a fresh pic, visit other blogs, write coms and read all the coms and comment on coms.

@Peter: i did not say that anything is wrong with this picture . In fact I like it more than any other I saw on Am3 of poppy flowers . This is a picture for my soul , so nothing wrong with it . I posted this picture to fill up the empty date :)) Thanks Peter for your comments . As for me , I have less and less time and wish to comment on the pictures I am really not interested in . Maybe soon, I visit and comment only a few of Am3 friends, who are into the street / people photography as myself .

Hey , superb colors, excellent & very moody, sweet mood, nostalgia & tenderness... Colors are terrific.
