In the Garden

With the current movement restrictions in place my photography has taken a hit. I’ve been going running as my daily exercise and haven’t fancied taking my camera with me.  The problem with lunchtime runs is there is always a call to be back for so I’m time limited, otherwise I would be tempted to swap my run, for a walk with the camera.  Particularly as the spring flowers are fabulous.

 

Today I decided to get my Sony 30mm macro lens out. It lets me focus really close, down to 5 inches from the sensor, which is about 1.5 inches from the front of the lens.  I decided to play with photographing the tiny flowers in the lawn before it was cut and they were lost. When you look closely they are so pretty.

 

 

 

Water Everywhere – Lensbaby Blog Circle

 

This is the third weekend running the UK has had weather warnings for rain and high winds as storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge sweep by. Much of the local countryside in Worcesershire is sodden and many towns on the banks of the Severn have been flooded. Although not far from the Severn we are safe from the floodwater.

 

As you can imagine I’ve seen lots of photos of flooded areas on social media and they begin to lose their impact. For this month’s blog I’ve stuck with water as a theme, used my Burnside 35 and had a play with black and white.
