Last Sunday I was feeling a little glum so my husband and I powered through our chores and took ourselves down to the Camellia Gardens, which we’re lucky to live just around the corner from. I took my camera, and he his book.
Within a few minutes of viewing the world through my macro lens I was thoroughly grounded and feeling calm once again. I have to admit, it’s been months since I took my camera out and about as sewing has been my main pass-time lately (that and watching my husband play video games while I stay in my blanket cocoon on the couch…I don’t like winter much).
Here’s a selection of my favourites.
As always, I shoot on an Olympus OMD-EM5. These were all using my Macro lens using various settings, hence why there are a number of variations of the same flower. I love slowly getting closer and discovering the incredible detail we so often miss in passing.
