This post was first written May 2015. It was interesting to go back to the original and see how much as changed. I have to say not a lot. I have updated it in a few places, but these are still the pieces of kit I can’t live without.
Earlier this week a parcel arrived and in it was a new lens that Lensbaby have loaned to me, the Velvet 85. It is part of the Velvet series. I’ve been using the Velvet 56 for over a year now, so when they asked me if I would like to try it and review it, […]
It has been a couple of weeks since I did one of these. It is nice to get back into it and I loved finding so many flowers in my garden when I got home. I haven’t had a chance to get out to them to take photos, but will soon.
It has been raining here quite a bit and the flowers in the garden are suffering from it a bit. They seem a bit soaked, or drenched, not sure. It is also nice to see that many things are starting to flower. I planted quite a few bulbs, so I’m looking forward to them flowering. […]

The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is almost over now and while I only went a couple of times it was great to be there again. I took hundreds of photos, some better than others, but still, it got me back into some macro photography. I really enjoyed playing around with the macro lens and […]

It happens every year at this time, and for a long time there was even a public holiday so people could go. We lost that holiday years ago. We were told we had too many public holidays, then last year or the year before they decided perhaps we didn’t so they gave us a new […]
While I have the Lensbaby Velvet 56 it is my intention to use it as much as possible to see what I can get with it. I do hope you won’t get sick of the photos, but I have to say for some things it is magic. I went to the main Melbourne Zoo the […]
