I actually love daffodils.
They're such cheerful flowers and since moving into a new flat with my boyfriend, it's nice to put a sneaky girlish stamp on the place.
I'm writing about this for two reasons.
1. Because this bunch of daffodils were £1 from M&S and I think they're a taste of spring in a vase for hardly any money at all.
2. I've decided to begin a photography project called Project 52, whereby said photography enthusiast takes an image every day for a year to keep their passion alive. This picture is my official first shot of the project!
I used a black and white filter from online Photoshop actions and textures store Paint the Moon with an added action named 'Matte Portobello' and a film grain effect. I love film photography and thought I'd alter this colourful image to monotone to give it a different look.
I suppose in a way, it's also to reflect the fact that we love to pick flowers, but all too soon they're wilting and withering away. An instantaneous pick me up.
A bit deep for a Friday!
Are you rolling with Project 52? I'd love to hear from those who are!
