I take most of my photos when I’m out in the mornings with my dogs. August has been a strange month as most of the mornings have been dull and overcast although it often brightened up later. There are a few flowers in bloom but many have gone to seed and the fruit is beginning to grow and ripen. Splat and I have enjoyed several bramble breakfasts in the fresh air.
There was a moodiness in the air on the days I took these shots and it wasn’t all down to the Lensbaby Single glass optic.
I hope you enjoy the photos. For more great shots please follow the links to see what others in the blog circle have been photographing in August. Next up is Jessica Verdiere at Kleine Fotokiste
I can’t believe I’m two thirds of the way through my Lensbaby 365 challenge.
In August I was shooting with the Single glass optic which is one of the older Lensbaby optics. I love the softness of these lenses when at their widest aperture. Most of these shots are at f2.
To get the close ups I used the *4 macro filter.
My memories of August were it was a dull almost over cast month, especially when I was out with my camera. The light seems to change about half way through the month and the mornings have certainly felt much darker over the last few weeks. It won’t be long til I’m getting up in the dark again.
How quickly times flies!
Happy new year and welcome to the Lensbaby Blog Circle latest selection of posts.
The best thing about the holidays is that I get to walk the dogs every morning.
I’m still exploring the Old Hills and finding the best places to take photos. It’s strange looking across the valley and seeing the Malvern Hills, where we used to do all our walking. The weather hasn’t been great for photography, its it’s mainly been mild and grey. The few frosty sunny days we’ve had were days I had to work.
I tried using different lenses and optics. It was fun playing with the single glass optic, it’s been a very long time since I had a play with that one. The shots below were taken with my Burnside 35, Sweet 80, Sweet 35 or Single Glass Optic.

Welcome to the third post in our Lensbaby Circle Blog.
Primroses are a flower I’ve always struggled to get good photos of so I thought I’d have a play using different Lensbaby optics and lenses. Their delicate colour is difficult to capture and when I try post processing the results the colour doesn’t seem to look real. I got my tripod out along with my macro converters and lenses enabling me to get really close. The colours are straight out of the camera. Despite taking notes I still managed to mix up which lenses and optics I used. I need to get more organised.
I am pleased with the results below, I hope you enjoy them.
I did have the Sweet 80, Plastic optic, Single glass optic, Soft focus optic, Edge 80, Twist 60 and Sweet 35 out.
