It's been a while since I got my macro lens out. A dark rainy day and nothing much to do was a perfect recipe for testing out bouncing on camera flash off a white umbrella (regular one, not photographic).
The cherry trees are also in full bloom.
I twisted my back the other day and have been completely out of action for almost a week now. The first few days I could barely crawl around to get to the bathroom but I'm slowly getting back on my feet and getting tired of starting at the ceiling.
I had been waiting for these flowers to blossom in a vase at home for ages and almost forgot to get a photo of them before they had withered. Luckily having a tripod meant I didn't have to hold the camera for long to get a nice photo.
I have always been awful at naming plants. Shameful, considering I studied botany as part of my biology degree. Whatever it is, it caught my eye.
Was busy at a wedding yesterday and missed this post. Hopefully that's a good enough excuse.
I took this photo through a wire fence. It took so long to get the right position so the lens wasn't obscures and the flowers were in shot. I didn't realise I was being bitten by a load of mosquitoes while I was doing it.
This photo represents my first month of daily photos and has gone really quickly. At the start I tried taking a photo each day and uploading it but this proved a little tricky as I didn't know if I would always have internet access so I scheduled most of them with photos taken a few days before. Unfortunately, the blog app I am using doesn't automatically post to social networks so the Facebook shares have been slightly haphazard. I hope Squarespace can short this out soon. The next few uploads I will do will be from film scans I took recently. Onto another month of photos!
