Floral Friday – A single flower at the Flower Show


It is the end of the week again, so that means it is time for Floral Friday and today I have a single flower for you that was taken at the Flower Show. Though I do like to add some more information to these posts, so some quick words.

Email List

It has started and you may find that when you come to this site a window will pop up asking if you would like to download something. At the moment it is 10 tips for long exposure photography in the city. I have set up the window that will come up to only appear every few days. that way you won’t get it everytime you come. Of course, I want you all to sign up to my list, but I understand if you don’t want to. I will be doing emails with more tips and challenges for people, at least that is the plan at this stage.


This seems to be a thing now, and I like the idea. Not sure exactly how to go about it, but it is something I will be doing.

My podcast is going to be like a journal or diary on my photography trips. More information on how I take my photos, what worked, what didn’t and so on. Perhaps settings and such as well. When I make mistakes I will discuss them and what I would do differently. At this stage, I hope it will be once a week.

More on that to come with time.

Floral Friday – A single flower at the Flower Show

As stated at the beginning today’s photo is of a single flower. I still have so many flowers from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show that I am sure you will be seeing many more in the weeks to come.

My garden just never really took off and while I have about 14 different dahlias planted I’m not really getting any flowers yet. I have been watering them, and I put some fertiliser on the recently, so I am hoping they might show me some before they die off for winter.

  1. Hi, Leanne. Great idea of the podcasts. There is some free audio recording software that you can download. It’s available for a Mac or PC. After recording, you save the file and upload it. It’s best if you use a separate mic and not the built-in one in the computer. Here’s the link to the software. If you want any additional advice, just ask! I’m happy to share. https://www.audacityteam.org/

    1. Thank you Patti, I have one up, I will have to find out how to link it. I have audacity, it is good, it is what I did my first one on. It is a great program.

  2. Podcasting on photography, I don’t think it’s been done yet … at least I haven’t heard of one. Potential topic: you bring the camera along with the idea to take photos, but end up not taking any. “There’s nothing here I want to photograph, let alone remember in the form of a picture.” Have you had that kind of moment?

    1. It has been done quite a bit David, but I figure it can’t hurt to try, I like the idea. Well that can happen, I have that, though I always end up taking photos, but sometimes I never use the photos. I should delete them really. I want to talk about my photography experiences and hopefully people want to hear about it. They are a bit amateurish, well the only one I’ve done is. Thank you David.
