blog crush : Poppytalk's spring colour week

This weeks was the first time I've followed one of Poppytalk's colour weeks and I'm so pleased I did. It has been incredibly inspiring discovering such gorgeous images and talented photographers! What I find most inspiring is how a simple colour theme can be interpreted so widely and so creatively. How some of the most mundane everyday objects can be photographed from a perspective that turns them into the most precious and beautiful works of art. Here are just a few of my most favourite images from the week...

Actually I'm quite surprised at how much purple and green made it into this selection, especially purple as it's not a colour I use very much. Maybe I'm being influenced by 'Miss Edith' and her crocus loving ways!?
You can see all the other submissions in the 'Spring Colours Week' flickr pool.

Oh, and for everyone who is just entering into the autumn season (and isn't feeling all these springy vibes at all) then you can check out the 'Autumn Colour Week' pool from a few months ago which is equally as beautiful and inspiring.

Wishing you all the most lovely weekend,
Emma, x
