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.
After some heavy overnight rain, it was a grey drizzly morning on Malvern Common, but the harebells and grasses looked beautiful covered in raindrops.
We explored some different paths along our usual route round the Old Hills this morning. The countryside is beautiful and we so often fail to appreciate what’s on our doorstep.
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.
I’ve had fun over the last few months exploring new running routes and discovering some of the local footpaths. One takes me from the Old Hills over a hill and down to Jennett Tree Lane. At the top of the hill there are great views of Worcester and the Malvern Hills. Today we had a wander up there with the dogs and my camera. Hope you like the views as much as I do.
It was a lovely, sunny morning on Saturday and I chose to put my velvet 56 on my camera to wander round the Old Hills with the dogs. There’s always something to photograph either on the Old Hills or wandering back down Bush Lane. I hope you like the shots below.
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.
Yesterday when I was playing with the Pin hole optic, I switch to the zone plate and take a photo in the same position. Here are the zone plate versions, plus a few extra which didn’t work with the pin hole optic.
I found out by accident that today is World Pin Hole Camera Day. As it was a lovely bright morning I took my Lensbaby Pin Hole/ Zone Plate optic when walking the dogs. It’s an optic I rarely use because the aperture is so small and it needs really bright light, or a tripod.
