I used to do this a lot, but haven’t for a while and I have decided it is time to do it again. While these aren’t the photos from this week, they are all ones that I have done recently.
I am sure I have told you that I have more than one Instagram account, well only two, but I have been doing more work on one than the other.
Getting out to take photos has been so hard in the last couple of years, and well now it is even worse. Omicron is making itself known and I seem to be hearing from people left right and centre who have it, or have been in contact with someone who has it.
My eldest daughter seems to have caught it and possibly passed it on to my youngest. Everything is a mess here right now. We have to use Rapid Antigen Tests if you have been exposed and if it is positive go get a PCR test. Problems, no one can find the Rapid Antigen Tests, there just aren’t any left. So if you need to get tested you have to wait until you have symptoms. Then you have to wait 5 to 7 days to get results. I mean, could it be screwed up anymore.
Thankfully both my daughters are double vaccinated so hopefully it won’t be too severe. Though, my youngest daughter always seems to get everything worse than everyone else. My husband is the same, which is why I’ve been doing everything I can to protect him. Part of doing that is living in a bubble basically. Fingers crossed they will both be okay. Part of that bubble is taking photos in my garden.
That is the name of my other Instagram page. If you click on the title it is also a link to the page.
As the name suggests, I just put up my macro work there. Since living in our bubble one thing that I have been doing a lot is using the extensive macro gear I have to do a lot of macro photography. You all know how much I love it.
I have wondered if you would like a post on what all my macro gear is. I have a lot of different things. Lots of Lensbaby and other things. I’m now collecting more for my Fujifilm cameras too.
So the following photos have been taken with the Fujifilm macro lens, the Lensbaby Velvet 56, along with the Lensbaby Composer Pro II with either the Sweet 35 or Sweet 50.
I still have the Fujifilm macro, but it will be going back soon. It has been good having it, and I’m annoyed I can’t afford to buy one. Still, I have my Nikon macro lens, so I can keep using it. It is nice to have choices. The Fujifilm macro lens will have to wait for the time being. I have so many things to use to take photos of the flowers in my garden, I just need more flowers now.
I have talked enough now, so here is a gallery of those images. Take everyone, stay safe and stay healthy. It’s my birthday today, so I will definitely be relaxing and taking it easy.
