Finally, I got around to concentrating on taking photos of just the flowers. If you can believe that. Though, that isn’t really true either, but I did go there with that intention.
Today I spent Day 3 at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show with my friend Chris. We got there early and just wandered.
One thing I like about going on multiple days is that I can try different things each day. Today was my Lensbaby day.

I took along my Lensbaby Velvet 56 and the Composer Pro II with the Sweet 50 and the Sweet 35.
I ended up having fun with the Composer Pro II and the Sweet 35 on my Fujifilm X-S10 nearly all day. There was a time when I tried the Sweet 50, but I ended up swapping it back.
It is an interesting lens to use when taking photos. I find the manual focusing hard sometimes, but I am getting used to it. It is one of those things where the more you use it the better you get, I hope.
Not all the photos are really sharp, but there is something else there. I have some that I want to do more work on before I show you.
I have done a few in Lightroom to show you.
I know with any normal lens you can isolate parts of an image, but if you have things besides the subject then they will be sharp too. I like how the composer pro allows you to isolate just one thing. It is really interesting. Take a look and see what you think.
I am so tired. Three days of getting up really early to drive in so I could get a park has really taken it out of me. Perhaps that and also walking around and doing all that photography. It has been a couple of years since I went out so much.
I have so many photos, and I don’t know if you will see them all, but it has been great getting a collection together again. Whispering I say, Life almost seems like it is getting back to normal. We can hope, fingers crossed. Maybe toes too.
