Yesterday I ran a macro photography class at Alowyn Gardens. Seems I can’t get away from teaching and I’m planning on doing more.
To say it is getting crazy would be an understatement and so I thought a short post today with a flower for you to see. I photographed it in my garden.
Last week I mentioned Dahlias and this week I wanted to tell you about the 2nd flower that is a favourite of mine, chrysanthemums. Every time I think of them I remember that scene from Anne of Green Gables when they were spelling the name of them.
When you love macro photography, especially when photographing flowers we get ones that we love or become our favourite. For me, mine would have to be dahlias.
The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is over for the year and now I have 100’s of photos that I will need to sort through. Once that is done I can work out which ones I will do more with.
One of the things that I love about visiting the MIFGS each year is catching up with the Struman Optics team and their lenses. This year I’ve been playing with a new macro lens for my phone.
Yesterday was the first day of the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show and opening day was massive. There were so many people there.
The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show for 2019 starts tomorrow, so I thought it might be nice to look back on some photos from last year.
After yesterday’s post it seemed like a nice idea to show you a flower from my garden. This is one of my dahlias. It is growing well.
Finally, got out again today to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens. It is nice to get another visit in, though many of the water lilies are done, but we did manage to get something different.
