In the Lawn


My favourite lens is my Lensbaby Velvet 56. I love the glow it creates, especially when wide open and as its a macro lens it lets me get really close to my subjects. I’ve been playing with the Lensbaby Velvet 85 over the last few weeks. The longer focal length means i don’t have to get so close to get images I love. I spent some time today crouching on the lawn trying to capture the little flowers hidden between the blades of grass.



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.
