Inspired by poppies…

We went to Centennial Park today. It was a gorgeous day. Eoin did a few laps on his bike and I took Lily to feed the ducks.

We came upon some absolutely beautiful poppies. I love poppies. When I was little I used to love opening the poppy buds and  un-crumpling the petals. Today, poppies really got me back into photography for a brief moment…

Despite being 34 weeks pregnant I was lying on my back, rolling around in the dirt, and pointing my iPhone up towards the sky to capture the gorgeous colours of the petals. I have to say, I’m very impressed with the quality of the photos on the iPhone 5. I usually carry my Canon G12, but it’s good to know I can use my phone if I leave my G12 at home (or indeed my Canon D30, which doesn’t get to go out much at all these days!!).
