While the sun was out this afternoon I had a play with my Lensbaby Velvet 28 and Velvet85 in the garden. The caterpillars have destroyed the leaves on the radish and I wanted to get some shots of the basil flowers.
The basil flowers were covered in bees and I’ve included the best shot of the day.
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.
I was playing with my Lensbaby Velvet 85 in the greenhouse. The vegetable flowers are so pretty.
This week’s prompt for my Definitely Dreaming project 52 is “Little things”. I took my camera with my Lensbaby Velvet 56 on the Old Hills while walking the dogs, hoping to capture something suitable. I found lots.
The blossom on the trees is fantastic at this time of year. There are two in my neighbours garden, one with pink blossom and the other white. With the overnight rain and wind much of it has fallen like confetti.
It was beautiful when we went walking on the Old Hills this morning.
On Sunday morning I went on the Old Hills with the dogs and my camera. It was a beautiful, sunny, spring morning.
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.
It was a beautiful sunny day between the showers so I went for a wander with my camera. I didn’t go far and the signs of spring were everywhere.
I bought myself some lilies last week and today they’ve all come out and were look spectacular. I just had to get my macro lenses out and have a play.
