It is time for my Floral Friday post and today I was keen to work on a photo of a tulip that the light was hitting it in an unusual way. I tend to hate dappled light, but here it was perfect.
Today for my Influencing Me post I thought we might have a quick look at Still Life in art. My examples are paintings, but we are seeing more and more photographic still life as well.
The dahlias are finished for the year, but I thought it might be nice to take another look at them for Floral Friday. I can’t wait for them to be back.
For the Floral Friday post today I thought it might be nice to show you some photos I took when visiting the Dunedin Botanical Gardens. I took a few, but have only prepared three.
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.
Today seemed like a good day to do a Floral Friday post with a flower I photographed from Dunedin. It is a quick post.
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.
Since we have been looking at so many macro shots it seemed like a good idea to use one of those for Monochrome Wednesday. This is a cosmos flower that I photographed at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.
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.
A year or so ago I was going to post work by Leslie Gleim, but it didn’t happen, I stopped doing the posts. Today I am happy to show you Leslie’s work for my Influencing Me post today.
