Colour Field – Red
Earlier in the year I started a project about different coloured fields. I still have plenty of colours to complete but I had been looking out for poppies so I could tick off red.
Sometimes when you look too hard for something you miss what is under your nose. This was one such realisation. I had not noticed that a field which I drive past each day was full of poppies. I mean this field is right next-door to the main road I drive and cycle along. It is on the the hill south of Castle Cary, looking in the map I think this hill is called Lodge Hill, or Priddle’s Hill, or even Ansford Hill.
I sometimes worry when I stop to get my camera out on the way to work that my colleagues will see me and take the micky (tease me). So I kept my head down and photographed the field – quickly.
