We had been collecting images (both photos and video) of poppy flowers for more than a year; and also trying to cultivate real ones on the terrace. It seems that poppies grow more efficiently in wild places – in an un-plowed field, in the cemetery, in the countryside – than they do with too much care and attention at home !

Red poppies fit well with marcomathieumedia’s red/black color scheme – three photo-shopped poppy heads. All taken from the photographs shown in the side-bar.
A special “étude” of poppies was created from video and photographs – with Brahms Intermezzo played on piano by a talented colleague, recorded in 2016. It ends with a photo of a poppy field painting (unknown artist).
