Floral Friday – Flowers from a couple of visits

Last weekend I taught my first macro photography class. It went well I think. I had a friend doing the class and she said she thought it was good. 

Alowyn Gardens is such a great place for macro photos and it seemed like the perfect place for a macro class. It was, though the place was so busy and there were so many people. I’ve never seen it that busy before.

This was taken with the Lensbaby Velvet 85. I love the effect of this lens. It is still on loan from Lensbaby, though no doubt it will be gone soon.

Finding a display garden that you can go back to over and over is fantastic. I have a yearly membership so I don’t have to pay when I go. They are always changing the displays and so every time you go there are new things to photograph. It makes it so interesting.

  2. I like the three dimensional feel you get from these amazing macro photos, Leanne!

Talk to me, it is too quiet.
