weekly photo challenge: saturated

You wanna talk completely covered, as in saturated?  Okay ~ try this Autumn tablecloth, from my hoard of California goodies from 20 years ago.  On a dark green (love it!) background, with scarcely enough space between each vivid flower, the eye doesn’t so much focus on specifics, but groups.

If you hadn’t guessed, I do love green, but also all brilliant Autumn colours.  My eye sees the rich orange-yellows of the larger sunflowers and daisies first, or simultaneously with the reds. (Are they poppies or roses, or does it depend on which you’re looking at?)  Then a white daisy will grab for attention.  And only then do all the shades of green leaves come to my attention… and I realize a black background would look garish, too Hallowe’en.

I really don’t at all notice the deep rust-coloured leaves sprinkled throughout until I stop and focus on a section, as in the second photo above.  Did you?

‘Nuff said?  Enjoy!
