This morning I went out to the garden with my Fujifilm macro lens to see what I could photograph. I didn’t think I had that many flowers out there. Most of my bulbs flowered ages ago and sadly I didn’t get around to photographing them.
Spring is definitely here and El Nino has been declared, so summer is going to be really hot. If I want flowers out there I am going to have to use a lot of water. I love flowers out there, not just to photograph, but for the bees as well. I will have to deal with using a lot of water. We have had some mild summers in the last few years, so in one way I’m looking forward to a hot summer. I hope it will mean I can actually grow some stuff because it will be hot enough.
When I went out I was really surprised at how many there were and it was nice to see them. Though being out there has made me see I have a lot of work to do. So much weeding. It will get done slowly.
As I said I took the photos with my Fujifilm but there is one I took with my Lensbaby Velvet 56mm. Let me show you.
I needed to try out the lens because I dropped it. Actually that isn’t quite true, it fell off a shelf that I was moving stuff around on and it fell off. It fell about 130cm, which I think is just over 4 feet. It landed with a thud and then rolled away. I thought oh no, it is gone and that is the end of that lens. However, when I tried it out I think it might be okay. I guess time will tell. I will need to do a lot more photos with it to see.
I processed these in Lightroom, though I’m having trouble with that as well. I don’t understand why I can’t import photos from my SD cards. It has happened before and I’ve had to get onto Adobe to find out why. The last time was about a month ago and now it is happening again. It was just updated and now it isn’t working. I have wonder with these companies and their updates. My Kindle Unlimited app for my laptop keep screwing up as well. As soon as there is an update I have to uninstall it and then reinstall it to get it work properly. As if I have all the time in the world to find work arounds for their bad updates. Urgghhhh.
Anyway, I’m going to leave you with some of the flowers from my garden. They are in a gallery and remember to click on one to get a larger image, and then you can scroll through them.
