PHOTO DAY 11: Pop of Colour

Brief:  Use one colour to add life or drama to your shot.

I’m not very good at following instructions and when I saw this in the greenhouse it took by breath away.  I was not expecting the true leaves on the carob seedling to be such a vivid red and against the strong green leaves it just stands out.  But the image also needed some kind of background so I set it against some neutral hay.  So I’ve kind of used three colours.  Green and red are kinda opposite on the colour wheel so I think I may have gotten away with it.

    1. Hi Eden. I have never grown carob before and was really surprised to see the true leaves being so red and delicate against the strong green seed leaves. I’m also looking forward to attempting to make carob chocolate one day in the future.

    1. Hi Julie. I can’t wait to grow the carob and try and make the faux chocolate. I may change Easter forever, and we will be like the kid with the handknitted school jumper – still conforming to expectations, but so very different. (I was that kid!) Cheers Sarah : o )

    1. Thanks. I was not expecting it to be that colour. As the seedling grows it is fading from such a brilliant red to more of a muddy green colour. I love growing things for the first time because you have no idea how it will turn out.
      Cheers Sarah : o )
