Beautiful late spring day. Had lunch in the village with a friend and snapped these as I walked home. Sent them to her as a virtual bouquet, but thought I’d share them with you, too.
You know you’re a photographer when you spot trouble and run to it, get up and close as you can and poke your nose in. Notice his tongue? Don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a bee tongue before. Wonder how sharp it is…
Just as noxious as yesterday’s nasty thing and nearly as lovely… I’ve always had a weakness for morning glories
Funny how nasty is all in how you define it… back in the day, when I lived in upstate New York, I planted nasturtiums in the garden, loved and watered them and weeded out those things that might have interfered with them. My youngest child, a keen gardener almost from the womb, was especiallyContinue reading “Nasty thing”
While there is no doubt that most of photography comes from the eye of the photographer, there is simply no discounting the part that comes from having great equipment. Still getting my head around this new lens, discovering what it can do and just loving it all. I don’t know what the name of thisContinue reading “A yellow drop”

Oh yeah… when mother nature puts on a show! Of course I tweaked the contrast and upped the saturation to to really bring out the glorious detail of this fig in bloom… I have never seen such a gorgeous specimen! And it’s growing on the fig tree in my daughter’s garden… Just splendid!
So there I was, walking along in the reserve in Henderson with a bunch of folks from my photography club, on a gloomy day trying to find something to take a photo of for the Worldwide Walk competition. Can’t say I got anything worth entering, but I stumbled across this little bit of sunshine whilstContinue reading “Build Me Up Buttercup”
